Speed and alcohol are being blamed for the crash of a 1977 Corvette over the weekend that left two men injured.
The single-vehicle accident occurred around 3:45 p.m. on Saturday in the area of the Walpole Transfer Station in Walpole, New Hampshire, and forced that section of the road to be closed for several hours while the scene was investigated.
The driver, 19-year-old Raymond J. Gosetti of Langdon, New Hampshire, faces charges of aggravated driving while intoxicated. He was released on personal recognizance bail and will be arraigned in Cheshire County Superior Court in Keene.
He was taken to Cheshire Medical Center in Keene for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, while his passenger, Zachary Ledrew, 19, of Walpole suffered serious injuries (but non-life threatening) and was flown by helicopter to Dartmouth Hitchcock.
Authorities say Gosetti crashed into a tree as he drove north on Route 123 and apparently failed to negotiate a curve in the road. The Corvette suffered extensive damage to the front and middle sections, based on a photo provided by New Hampshire police.
State Police were assisted on scene by the Walpole Police Department, the Marlow Police Department, the Bellows Falls Police Department, the Walpole Fire Department and DiLuzio Ambulance Service.
Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call Trooper Aramus Caraballo at 603-223-8494.
