Teen Dies Following Crash With SUV

The driver of the SUV was taken to the hospital to be checked by doctors

State police say a 17-year-old girl has died after her car was struck by a sport utility vehicle in Atkinson.

Police say a car driven by Emma Jacobs of East Kingston was hit by an SUV on Route 111 around 4:50 p.m. Wednesday.

Jacobs, an Exeter High School senior, died and her passenger was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the SUV, 37-year-old Melissa Muzrall of Hudson, was taken to the hospital to be checked by doctors.

The Portsmouth Herald reports Jacobs survived critical injuries in an accident four years ago when she was struck by a car while riding in front of her house on a skateboard-type device.
