Nantucket: Another one gone......

she loved her Jeep......

By Jason Graziadei
I&M Senior Writer

(Jan. 9, 2012) A semi-trailer crunched a Jeep Grand Wagoneer at the Milestone Rotary just before noon on Monday.

The 92-year-old female driver of the Jeep appeared uninjured, but was removed from the vehicle in a stretcher and transported to Nantucket Cottage as a precaution. Deputy fire chief Ed Maxwell said he did not believe she had suffered any injuries.

The driver of the Stop & Shop semi, who was traveling toward the rotary on Orange Street, said he was taking a wide right turn in the left lane when the Jeep came up beside him in the right lane as he was pulling onto Sparks Avenue.

Nantucket, eh. No tourists this time of year (weather is raw this time of year), so it's likely a resident. I'd guess it's one of those celebrity-quality Wagoneers (ie Wagonmaster). Looks pretty nice in the picture.

I would think the damage isn't all that bad, but it's hard to tell from the picture. If it's cancer free or mostly cancer free it would be worth fixing.

She is 92 and was still rocking the Waggy.

Must've been a scary ride for her, I'm glad she's ok. Maybe the stop & shop's insurance Co. will find her another cherry Wag. Or perhaps she's got a couple parts cars behind her garage she can use to fix it.... If she's been a jeepy chicky all these years, she might still do her own maintenance

Best of luck to her, either way.

It seems like the FSJ passed the truck on the right hand side as he was making a wide right turn. That would be the FSJ driver's fault. :-/

Glad she's OK.

I was told when I got my CDL that it is the truck drivers fault in this instance, that you are supposed to stay close and swing wide after the turn. Do I do it? No, but that is what they said.....

Yeah, I was thinking from the brief read, the semi was making a right hand turn from the left lane..... Jeep in right lane should have seen motion and blinkers, but not everyone is that observant.

Looks like she had the curb/sidewalk as an escape route, looks like it could have been saved, with a few tire marks in the lawn.
Bummer, glad she came out OK.

Red face Laddies...are you forgetting something?

I think they drive on the wrong side of the road down under. Failure to clear when making a two lane turn I'd say semi's fault ....Crunching a pristine relic like a Wagoneer, should still bring the death penalty in these types of cases...violently like firing squad or hanging. Firing squad by jeep owners

Oops. My mistake. I didn't see that there were two lanes. Too bad she didn't see the blinkers. But that's how most accidents happen. One person never sees it coming. :-/

Yeah I always used to take both lanes when I drove. Then they CAN'T get there even if they aren't paying attention. Sucks to see a wag destroyed but I'm gonna side with the trucker.

She was probably red green color blind and didn't see the truck
