ALSTEAD — A 24-year-old Florida woman died in a single-car crash in Alstead, N.H. State Police said Saturday.
Jacqueline LaChapelle of Oviedo, Fla., died as a result of injuries sustained in the crash, according to police. A resume posted online lists LaChapelle as a 2013 graduate of Fall Mountain Regional High School in Langdon, and her Facebook page lists her as being from Alstead.
Emergency responders were called to the scene on Comstock Road at the intersection of Darby Brook Road shortly before 8 a.m., police said.
Alstead Fire Chief Kim Kercewich said the driver was the only person in the car.
Police said LaChapelle was driving a 2014 Ford Fusion west on Comstock Road when the car left the road near the bridge over Darby Brook, and landed on its roof, partially submerged in the brook. Kercewich said the car dropped about 15 to 20 feet.
