A 34-year-old Groveland woman has died from injuries suffered early today when she was the golf cart she was riding in was struck by a minivan as both vehicles were traveling on Rte. 16 in Albany, NH.
New Hampshire State police identified the woman as Robin Clohecy of Groveland. In a statement, troopers said Clohecy was one of four people -- including an 11-year-old child -- riding in a golf cart on Rte. 16 around 12:30 a.m. today.
According to police, the golf cart was being driven by Jared Fronterio, 33, of Gloucester, in the southbound lane of Rte. 16. Also on the golf cart was Andrew Morrissey, 31, of Newton, and the child, whose name and gender were not released by authorities.
While the cart was near the Pine Knoll Camp Ground, it was struck by a 1995 Ford Windstar minivan being driven by David Reed, 47, of Fryeburg, Maine, who was driving southbound on Rte. 16 at the time, police said.
Reed was not injured. But all four in the golf cart suffered some injury and were transported to Memorial Hospital in Conway, NH. Clohecy was pronounced dead of her injuries there, police said.
Fronterio was airlifted to Maine Medical Center in Portland with serious injuries.
Morrissey and the 11 year old were treated for minor injuries and released, police said.
The crash remains under investigation "but alcohol appears to be a contributing factor,'' police said in a statement.
