NASHUA — A wrong-way collision on the F.E. Everett Turnpike Exit 5 Northbound onramp led to the arrest of a Nashua man late Thursday night.

New Hampshire State Police responded to the crash at about 11:20 p.m. after a UPS tractor-trailer was struck head-on by a 4-door sedan.

The driver of the UPS truck, Fred Coffin of Waterford, ME, managed to bring his vehicle to a controlled stop before the collision.

The sedan’s driver, Omer Landry, 45, also from Nashua, was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.

Neither driver suffered serious injuries, and there were no prior reports of a vehicle traveling the wrong direction before the accident occurred.

The onramp was closed for two hours as crews cleared the area.

Landry faces charges including Reckless Conduct, Driving While Intoxicated, and operating an Unregistered and Uninspected vehicle.

He is expected to appear in the Hillsborough Superior Court in January.

Authorities are seeking additional information and have asked anyone with details to contact Trooper Bryan Taylor at 603-223-4381.
