Two People Injured in I-93 Car Accident
PLYMOUTH, N.H.--Two people driving a New Hampshire registered Nissan Altima are considered to be in serious condition after their car swerved and flipped over into the median on Interstate 93 on Tuesday following a weekend snow storm. The slippery conditions caused the vehicle to cartwheel several times before stopping, leaving five indents in the snow before resting on it's hood.
No information about the accident victims is available yet, but according to firefighters who rushed to the scene the two were heading south approaching Exit 26 when they lost control. The vehicle swerved into the left guardrail, breaking the wooden supports, and flipped over it. Two ambulances rushed the victims to Speare Memorial Hospital where they remain in serious condition.
Former PSC Secretary Indicted on Charges of Theft and Fraud
PLYMOUTH, N.H. -- Sarah Stevens, 24, former Secretary for Retha Fielding, Vice President of Institutional Advancement, and PSC student was indicted by a Grafton County Grand Jury for allegedly using a college credit card to purchase over $1,000 of merchandise for herself last semester. Two charges were held against her were theft by unauthorized taking and one count of fraudulent use of a credit card, both Class A felonies.
She was not found guilty as the jury decided that enough evidence was shown to move the case to a superior court. The incident took place last December. Stevens' employment with the college was immediately terminated, but no details concerning her case were available at the time. More on this story as it develops.
Boyd Path Gate Remains Closed at Night Following Committee Discussion
PLYMOUTH, N.H. -- A subcommittee of the College Community Council (CCC) met briefly last Friday to discuss the closing of the gate at the entrance of the Boyd Path. Members of the town pushed to close the gate until the path is moved following completion of Boyd Hall, but college officials and students contested saying that it provides easier access to the campus from Pleasant Street. After the committee's discussion the college reached a decision to keep the gates hours as open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. The gate will be locked during the night.
The gate will have posted hours and a sign that reads "No Trespassing" to keep people from entering. Many town residents living on Pleasant Street voiced complaints last fall and recently that the path was being misused by students and other trespassers. Town representatives called for immediate action at Last Tuesday Night's CCC meeting. Vice President of Student Affairs Dick Hage met with several landlords and student senators to discuss the issue further and make a decision. The gate's hours remain the same and both campus and town police officers will be patrolling the area to ensure that there is no further misuse.
