HOOKSETT, N.H. (AP) — State police say a three-car crash has sent two people to the hospital with serious injuries.

Authorities say a car driven by 69-year-old Rebecca Webster, of Candia, was traveling southbound on Route 3 in Hooksett around 12:30 p.m. Friday when it crossed into the northbound lanes. Webster's car struck a vehicle being driven by 51-year-old John Tousignant, of Concord, nearly head-on and his car hit an SUV operated by 61-year-old Mary Myers, of Deerfield.

Webster and Tousignant were taken to a local hospital for treatment.

State police say it appears Webster had been driving her car on a flat tire but an investigation is looking into all possible causes of the crash.
