HUDSON – Police say no charges have been filed as yet, but the investigation is continuing into the two-vehicle rollover crash that tied up a major town intersection Tuesday afternoon.

Officers, along with firefighters and medical personnel, were called shortly after 5:30 p.m. to the intersection of Ferry and Library streets to the scene of the crash. Upon arrival, they found a 2016 Jeep Cherokee on its roof in the eastbound lane of Ferry Street.

The driver, Donna Savastano, 63, of Derry, was examined by paramedics at the scene, then transported to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center in Nashua for treatment of what police described as minor injuries.

Neither Savastano nor the other driver, Marielle Choiniere, 17, of Hudson, had any passengers in their vehicles, police said.

Choiniere, who was driving a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe, was apparently uninjured. Police said both drivers were wearing seatbelts.

A preliminary investigation determined that Choiniere was driving south on Library Street, while Savastano was traveling west on Ferry Street. The vehicles collided where the two streets intersect, police said.

Investigators continue to look into the possibility that charges will be filed. Police said neither speed nor driver impairment appear to be factors in the crash.

Police said a portion of Ferry Street between Library and Chase streets was closed to traffic for about an hour to allow officers to conduct an on-scene investigation and for crews to remove the vehicles and debris.

Police ask anyone who may have witnessed the crash to contact officer Matthew Flynn at 886-6011 or mflynn@hudsonnh.gov.
