NH Volunteer Arrives at Crash That Killed Daughter

Car-Accident3BROOKLINE, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire volunteer firefighter who was among the first to arrive at the scene of a deadly crash unknowingly helped pull his own daughter from the wreckage.

Thirty-year-old Katie Hamilton of Brookline was killed in the accident around 9 a.m. Christmas Eve at the intersection of Routes 13 and 130. The mother of three young daughters worked as a plumber for her father Steve Whitcomb’s business.

Brookline Police Sgt. Douglas Barnett said Hamilton was southbound on Route 13 preparing to turn left when a truck driven by 31-year-old Greg Cullen of Milford hit the rear of her car and sent it into the northbound lane.  She was then broadsided by a Ford F-250 pick-up truck driven by 37-year-old James Ciprotti of Weare.  Neither man was injured.
