Thursday Morning Accident Shuts Down Mechanic Street in Lebanon

Lebanon e_SEmD Both lanes of traffic were shut down on Mechanic Street for roughly two hours yesterday morningmorningaround 9 a.m. after a car that was making a U-turn in the parking lot of Barre Tile collided head-on with a landscaping truck.
The driver of the vehicle making the turn, Jean Sanderson, 86, of Lebanon, was transported to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, where she was still being evaluated as of 5 p.m. yesterday, according to DHMC spokesman Rick Adams.
“She pulled out and just never stopped turning,” said Bill Clark, who works at Barre Tile and witnessed the accident. “She came right back into the path and drove head-on (with the truck).”
He said Sanderson was “humped over,” but “answering questions” after the accident.
Carl Lewis, who also works at the store, estimated that 10 to 12 people use the tile store’s driveway to pull a U-turn each day. “And it’s a hard one to pull out of right here,” he said.
The accident is still under investigation by Lebanon police.
