DIXFIELD —  One person was injured in a two-vehicle crash at Weld and North streets on Oct. 24.

Sgt. Jeff Howe said Justin Buotte, 28, was traveling north on Weld Street when his 1998 Chevrolet truck struck the right rear of a Federal Express Dodge van.  The FedEx van was driven by Christopher Whitten-Drummond, 31, who stopped it and was waiting to turn left onto North Street.
