Six Crashes Within 100 Yards This Morning On New Hampshire Highway
The latest storm may not have been a huge snow producer, but it was costly for quite a few New Hampshire drivers.
While parts of the Granite State received a small amount of snow to close out February, parts of Interstate 89 were extremely treacherous. Especially a 100 yard stretch in Enfield.
According to the Union Leader, a total of six crashes took this morning, all within the length of a football field. Two people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. One lane was shut down for more than two hours. New Hampshire police said in a statement that a trooper was at the scene “placing flares on the roadway when a box truck careered out of control and nearly struck him. The truck ended up overturning onto its side nearby.”
Think your at speed driving is okay for storm travel? Maybe so, but today they contributed to the numerous incidents. Police said “Operators driving too fast for the existing road and weather conditions contributed to these crashes occurring."
Be patient. Spring is only 20 days away.
