On Saturday March 7, 2020 at approximately 11:04 AM Rochester Police, Rochester Fire, and Frisbie EMS responded to the intersection of Salmon Falls Road and Whitehall Road for the report of a three car motor vehicle accident with injury. Emergency personnel arrived on scene to find three vehicles in the intersection, one of which sustained heavy damage.
The preliminary investigation revealed that Reed Kelleher (age 33 of Webster, MA) was operating a Jeep Grand Cherokee traveling north on Salmon Falls Road when he attempted making a left hand turn onto Whitehall Road. Victoria LaPorte (age 19 of Penacook, NH) was operating a Volkswagen Golf traveling south on Salmon Falls Road and struck the rear passenger side quarter panel of the Jeep. The collision pushed the Jeep into a Lexus GX 470, operated by Todd Gagliano (age 57 of Newington, NH), which was temporarily halted at the stop sign on Whitehall Road facing east, striking the front left side of the Lexus.
LaPorte was transported to Frisbie Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The accident remains under investigation. If anyone has information about this incident they are asked to contact Officer Dwayne Hatch at 603-330-7128 in reference to 20-174-AC.
