---- — LONDONDERRY— Two people were sent to the hospital following a two-car crash July 3 at the intersection of Hardy and Stonehenge Roads.

Londonderry police Officer Kelly Kulig said both drivers suffered minor injuries in the crash, which occurred just before 2 p.m. The drivers were the only people in the cars. One driver was sent to Parkland Medical Center in Derry and the other was taken to Catholic Medical Center in Manchester.

Kulig would not identify the drivers.

Joseph Dempsey lives at 47 Stonehenge Road and said the four-way intersection is too dangerous.

“We must have had 40 accidents in the eight years since I’ve lived here,” he said. “People blow through the stop signs all the time. I’ve wanted the town to put a light here for years. Someone is going to die here eventually.”

The intersection has two stop signs on each end of Hardy Road.

A black Nissan Maxima and gold Buick LeSabre were involved in the collision. The Maxima plowed into the stone wall in Dempsey’s yard. Both cars had significant front-end damage and their airbags deployed.

Bow cars were towed from the scene on flatbeds.
