LINCOLN –– A 30-year-old woman from Carroll, New Hampshire, identified as Kadeen N. Johnson, died in a rollover crash on Interstate 93 South on September 10, according to the New Hampshire State Police.
The incident occurred around 6:51 p.m. near mile 104.4 in Lincoln. Troopers found a white 2011 Infiniti QX56, driven by Johnson, overturned and resting on its roof on the right shoulder of the roadway.
According to eyewitness accounts and road evidence, Johnson was driving in the rain on a wet roadway when an animal appeared on the road south of Franconia Notch.
Johnson swerved, causing the vehicle to flip and hit a stone wall marking the “Leaving Franconia Notch State Park” sign.
Johnson was ejected from the vehicle and trapped underneath it. She later died from her injuries.
A second vehicle witnessed the crash and backed their truck into the Infiniti in an attempt to lift it off Johnson.
The driver and four children also in the Infiniti sustained minor injuries.
The New Hampshire State Police Collision Analysis & Reconstruction (CAR) Unit, Linwood EMS, Lincoln Fire Department, and Lincoln and Woodstock Police Departments assisted at the scene.
The right lane was closed for roughly four hours as emergency personnel cleared the scene.
