LOUDON, N.H. — Police in Loudon, New Hampshire said an intoxicated woman caused a three-car crash that killed one person on Sunday night.
Loudon Police and Fire responded to the area of 717 Route 106 for a car crash at around 9:43 p.m.
At the scene, officials found three cars had been involved in the crash. The first car, a Jeep Cherokee, was operated by 27-year-old Maggie Doorlag, of Concord, NH.
The second car, a Lexus sedan, which was stopped in the northbound lane, attempting to turn left into the driveway of 717 Route 106. The driver was identified as 22-year-old Angelica Lane, of Loudon, NH.
The third car, a Dodge Pick-Up, was being operated by 29-year-old Travis Dunn of Chichester, NH, and had two other passengers, Jamie Middleton, 28, also of Chichester, and a 1-year-old baby.
Preliminary investigation shows the Jeep had been traveling southbound on Route 106 when it hit the Lexus, pushing it into the path of the Dodge, causing it to crash into the Lexus.
Lane, who had been driving the Lexus, was pronounced dead on scene as a result from her injuries.
Doorlag, Dunn and Middleton only suffered minor injuries. The baby suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries and was taken to Concord Hospital for treatment.
During the investigation on scene, officials found there was probable cause to believe that Doorlag was impaired when the crash happened.

She is set to appear in Merrimack Superior Court on July 11.
