State Troopers from the Troop C barracks in Keene responded to a report of a crash on New Hampshire Route 12 near Lawrence Road shortly before midnight on Saturday, May 4.

Upon their arrival, they discovered a car that had veered off the roadway and collided with a large boulder, causing it to overturn.
