Sources tell NH Today, one of the vehicles in the accident was driven by top commanding officer from the New Hampshire State Police
Sources tell NH Today that a tractor trailer towing a modular home lost a wheel while driving SB ON 93 in Hooksett, causing a fatal multi-vehicle accident this morning.
The tire traveled across into the NB lane of interstate 93, striking an umarked State Trooper vehicle. Sources say the vehicle was being driven by one of the top commanders of the New Hampshire State Police. He is unharmed and shaken up. The tire bounced back into the SB lane, struck another vehicle which caused the fatal accident. State Police believe the tractor trailer is traveling out of state, and that the driver may not be aware of what happened. Police said the driver stopped briefly after passing through the tolls and then continued driving.
We will have more on that story, tomorrow morning on New Hampshire Today with Jack Heath, during our weekly segment with the NH State Police, on newsradio610 and 96-7.
