Two UNH Students Involved in Pedestrian Crash in Durham, New Hampshire
Two UNH students, including a member of the men's hockey team, were involved in a pedestrian crash in Durham Tuesday night.
Durham Deputy Chief David Holmstock said a 2015 Buick SE Enclave driven by Connor Lovett, 21, of Franklin, Massachusetts, struck pedestrian, Brian Faxon, 21, of Bedford, New Hampshire, as he crossed Main Street between Depot Road and Sage Way around 6:20 p.m. Faxon was crossing within the crosswalk, according to Holmstock.
Faxon was taken to Portsmouth Regional Medical Center via ambulance and then via medical helicopter to Maine Medical Center for treatment of serious injuries.
Lovett was not injured, remained at the scene, and is cooperating with the investigation, according to Holmstock. He is a forward on the UNH Wildcats men's hockey team. The team is off until February 3.
Holmstock said the investigation is ongoing, but speed and impairment do not appear to be factors in the crash. He asked anyone with additional information about the crash to call 603-868-2324.
