NASHUA — At 6:30 a.m. today, State Troopers from the #TroopB barracks in Bedford responded to a report of a traffic obstruction on the Everett Turnpike southbound near exit 4.

A white 2023 Western Star 49X flatbed truck, carrying a dumpster, had lost control due to excessive speed for the road conditions and struck an overhead sign structure.

Jonathan Soto, 36, of Worcester, Massachusetts, the driver of the flatbed, sustained minor injuries and received a summons for negligent operation of a motor vehicle.

The crash caused the overhead sign to become unstable, leading authorities to close the southbound side of the turnpike at exit 4.

The roadway was blocked until 11:30 a.m. as crews from the NH Department of Transportation, Continental Paving, and Bauchman’s Towing, Inc. worked to remove the debris and ensure the safety of the sign structure.

State Police are seeking additional information regarding the incident and urge witnesses to contact Trooper Knell at (603) 223-4381.
