A Nashua man was injured when a driverless SUV smashed into his car on Continental Boulevard in Merrimack Sunday afternoon.

Merrimack police and firefighters were called to the intersection of Continental Boulevard and Route 101A at 3:30 p.m. for the report of a two-car crash. When they arrived they found a 2007 Chevy Tahoe on the lawn of the Ocean National Bank at Pennichuck Square and Anurat Garcia, 41, of Nashua, injured inside his Toyota Prius at the intersection of the two roads, police said.

Police investigated and learned that a salesman at Autofair Volkswagen, located at 717 Route 101A, had parked the SUV after returning from a test drive. The truck then rolled out of the parking lot, down an embankment and onto Continental Boulevard where it collided with Garcia’s vehicle, which was stopped at a red light, police said.

Garcia suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was brought to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center. Both vehicles were towed from the scene, police said.
