NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - A state vehicle carrying New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan (HAS’-uhn) has been involved in a car accident, but police say she wasn’t injured.

Nashua police say a Volvo sedan that ran through a stop sign collided with Hassan’s vehicle at about 12:20 p.m. Thursday.

Police say State Trooper Scott Frye was driving Hassan when 45-year-old Marc Thayer, of Nashua, failed to stop at an intersection and hit the driver’s side of Hassan’s SUV.

No one was hurt. The Volvo was towed from the scene. Frye and Hassan were able to drive away.

A spokesman for Hassan says the governor visited a medical professional in the afternoon and received a clean bill of health.

Police are investigating the accident.

The Democrat is challenging Republican Kelly Ayotte for her U.S. Senate seat.
