Police are saying that Amanda Chaput was taken to North Country Hospital to be evaluated for her injuries, after she was rear-ended at around 9:45 a.m. Sunday, at the intersection of Vermont Route 105 and Blais Road.
Police say that Chaput had stopped to make a left hand turn, when Olivia Howell, 24, of Newport, slammed into her vehicle.
The impact of the collision was strong enough to cause the trunk of the vehicle, a 2004 Dodge Stratus, to be pushed into the rear seat.
