Crash On 293 In Manchester Leaves Large Debris Field. The Driver Was Taken Into Custody
Manchester Fire, AMR Ambulance and New Hampshire State Police Troop B responded to a motor vehicle crash on I-293 South in Manchester at mile marker 9.0 Wednesday morning at 3:40 a.m.
Troopers arrived and found a pickup truck on its side and a utility trailer off into the woods. When the vehicle crashed into the tree line it caused a large tree to fall across the right travel lane of the highway. The tree was subsequently struck by a motorist as troopers were arriving on the scene.
The crash also caused an extensive debris field consisting of thousands of nails, tools, and construction equipment that had been strewn across both southbound travel lanes.
State Police say the 2004 Chevrolet Silverado was driven by Matthew Worster, 51 of Merrimack, NH.
Worster sustained minor injuries in the crash according to police.
The road was closed for over an hour while emergency crews worked to clear the debris and the tree out of the roadway. Troopers were assisted at the scene by NH DOT as well as Manchester Fire and Rescue.
Preliminary investigation revealed that Worster had been driving after being deemed to be a Habitual Offender by the Director of Motor Vehicles and was taken into custody.
Anyone with information pertaining to the crash is asked to contact Trooper Luan Sanches at NH State Police Troop B at 603-271-3636
