The crash occurred when a 1989 Honda Civic driven by Jason Slattery, 31, of Milton, was traveling southbound on Milton Road and crashed into the vehicle, known as a Bearcat.

Slattery was taken to Frisbie Memorial Hospital where he was treated for significant injuries. Slattery was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.

The occupants of the Bearcat were not injured.

The accident occurred on June 5 around 4:15 a.m. after the tactical support vehicle, called a Bearcat, assisted with a standoff involving a barricaded subject.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the Bearcat was parked outside a Milton Road residence conducting a tactical operation in which the lawmen had just taken a subject into custody after he had broken into a residence on Milton Road and shot the home owner. The tactical team was still in the process of securing the residence when the crash occurred, according to a State Police press release.

Slattery has since been released from Frisbie Memorial Hospital, a spokesman said today.

New Hampshire State Police Troop A was requested to assist the Farmington Police Department with the crash investigation, which remains open and is under the authority of Trooper Michelle Montville. Anyone with information pertaining to this crash is asked to contact Trooper Montville at
