Four injured in two vehicle collision


JAY – Four people were transported to Franklin Memorial Hospital following an accident on Jay Hill Monday morning.

Mathew Grover, 16, of Livermore was traveling north at 11 a.m. in a 1992 Mercury on the south end of Jay Hill when he crossed the center line, said police Chief Larry White Sr. It had been raining and the road was wet and Grover, who was driving on a learner’s permit, over-corrected and hit the brakes. He lost control and the left rear side of the vehicle crossed back into the southbound lane where it collided with a 1985 Dodge driven by Dorothy Perry, 78, of Canton.

Passengers with Grover were his mother, Claire Grover, 42, the owner of the car, and Thomas Grover, 1, both of Livermore.

No life-threatening injuries were suffered by the four, White said.

“They were lucky,” he said, “as the vehicles hit very hard.”

All three Grovers were treated and released but Perry was admitted and remained in the hospital Tuesday, according to Jill Gray from Franklin Memorial Hospital.

Both vehicles were totaled and were towed by Hilltop Auto.

Jay police officer Morris Drouin investigated the accident, assisted by Livermore Falls officer Brock Caton and White.

Jay Fire Department responded to the scene and assisted NorthStar with the injured parties and with traffic control.
