Hampton Falls, NH — Two horse-drawn carriages collided Sunday afternoon, September 25, 2011, leaving six people with injuries at Applecrest Farm Orchards. The carriage accident occurred at 133 Exeter Road (Route 88) at 1:58 p.m., reported the Nashua Telegraph.

According to the New Hampshire State Police, the two horse-drawn carriages were traveling in the opposite direction when “an apparent malfunction occurred.” The operators of the two carriages subsequently lost control of their horses, which led to six people being injured.

Seacoast online reported that Joan Perkins, 51, of Epping suffered critical injuries, and Gregory Dow, 50, of Nottingham suffered serious injuries in the carriage accident. Four others sustained minor injuries and were transported to Exeter Hospital for medical treatment.

Perkins was later transferred via a Dartmouth-Hitchcock medical helicopter to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston for further treatment.

The New Hampshire State Police, Hampton Falls police, Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office and the Rockingham County Attorney’s Office are investigating the accident.
