CONCORD — A concrete truck collided with more than a dozen vehicles on Monday, March 25, in a dramatic crash that caused extensive property damage but, miraculously, no serious injuries, according to authorities.

New Hampshire State Police, along with local police and fire department units, responded to the chaos at around 1:30 p.m. following a report of an out-of-control concrete truck near the Park & Ride on Stickney Avenue.

Troopers from Troop D barracks learned that the truck, which was empty at the time, had been traveling south on Interstate 93 before it suddenly veered off the road, striking a guardrail near the Exit 14 off-ramp.

After plowing through a chain-link fence and down an embankment, the truck barreled into a parking lot adjacent to the Concord Coach Lines bus terminal, damaging 10 vehicles.

It then crossed Stickney Avenue, where it hit six more vehicles in another parking lot before finally coming to a halt.

An alert Concord Coach Lines employee managed to turn off the still-engaged truck, preventing further damage.

The driver of the truck, identified as 57-year-old Scott Long from Alton Bay, was transported to Concord Hospital.

Investigators believe Long likely suffered a medical episode which led to the accident.

No other injuries were reported at the scene.
