AUBURN –– A fatal single-vehicle crash led to significant traffic delays and an ongoing investigation on Wednesday.
The incident, which took place around 7:08 a.m. on Route 101 Westbound near Mile Marker 104.0, resulted in the death of one man and serious injuries to another.
State Police Troop A identified the deceased as Ronald Trouville, 43, of Manchester, who was driving a 2011 Cadillac CTS sedan.
The vehicle was found off the right side of the roadway and on its roof in the adjacent wood line.
Trouville had to be extricated from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene.
A passenger, who was ejected from the vehicle after control had been lost, was transported to the Eliot Hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
A single westbound lane of Route 101 was closed for roughly two hours as emergency personnel investigated the incident.
The Auburn Police Department, Candia Police Department, Derry Fire Department, and Candia Fire assisted State Police at the scene.
While the investigation is still ongoing, preliminary findings suggest driver fatigue and impairment as potential contributing factors.
Anyone with information regarding the crash is encouraged to contact Trooper Tyler Dodds.
