1 min read

MANCHESTER –– A high-speed rollover crash on Interstate 93 north caused heavy traffic backup and multiple accidents on September 2, according to New Hampshire State Police.

At approximately 12:40 p.m., troopers responded to the scene near mile 17.4.

They discovered a silver 2011 Audi A4, which had rolled over multiple times, resting on its roof on the right shoulder of the road.

Witnesses and roadway evidence suggested the juvenile driver of the Audi was speeding and changing lanes in heavy traffic.

When traffic slowed near the I-293 split, the driver was unable to reduce speed in time to avoid a crash.

The driver braked and swerved, potentially hitting at least one vehicle before veering off the road and rolling multiple times.

Three passengers were also in the vehicle at the time of the crash.

Despite the severity of the accident, no injuries were reported. However, the rollover caused significant traffic backup, resulting in several other crashes in the area.

The Manchester Fire Department and the New Hampshire Department of Transportation assisted the troopers at the scene.

The right two lanes of the interstate were closed for approximately two hours as emergency personnel cleared the scene.

The crash is still under investigation. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Trooper Skafidas at the New Hampshire State Police Headquarters at (603) 223-4381.
