Woman in Main Street accident still hospitalized

Pedestrian hit by car suffered head trauma

NASHUA – Courtney Lannon, the woman who was hit by a car while crossing Main Street on Nov. 26 remains in a Boston hospital with serious injuries, Nashua Police Lt. Craig Allard said Tuesday.

The investigation still is ongoing, with little information available about the circumstances of the accident. The driver of the vehicle was uninjured, police said.

Lannon, in her 20s, was struck near the intersection of Main and Kinsley streets, across from the main entrances to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center. She was treated at the scene, then airlifted to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston with what were described as “traumatic injuries.”

Lannon’s younger sister, Amy Anderson, started a fundraiser to “help with medical bills and other expenses,” she said on a GoFundMe page.

As of Tuesday afternoon, $6,625 of the $8,000 goal had been met.

“Courtney has gone through two major head surgeries to reduce the swelling of her brain, they have also put a monitor in her head to keep track of brain movements,” Anderson wrote on the page. She added that Lannon has had two sections of her skull removed.

“This is the worst case Mass. General has ever seen with head trauma,” Anderson wrote. Doctors, she said, are doing “everything in (their) power to give her a chance.”

The family has requested privacy.
