BEDFORD, NH (WHDH) — Bedford Police are investigating a serious, three-car crash on Route 101 Friday morning that injured three women.

According to witnesses, a 1998 Toyota Corolla driven by a 41-year-old Manchester woman was speeding and passing other cars by driving into oncoming traffic.

As she tried to pass a car, she veered into the path of a 2000 Honda CRV driven by a 68-year-old Milford woman, hitting the car.

The impact was sent off the road and into some trees. The Toyota then struck a 2015 Nissan Rogue driven by a 78-year-old Bedford woman.

The drivers of all three cars were transported to local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.

Route 101 was closed in both directions for about an hour while the drivers were rescued.

The crash is now under investigation.
