NH Couple Seriously Injured in I-93 SUV Rollover Accident

SUV rollover on I-93 in New Hampshire seriously injures two people.

SALEM, NH – Traffic on Interstate 93 South was backed up for hours Thursday afternoon while workers removed debris following an SUV rollover at Exit 2.

A man and woman in their mid-60s were both transported to Lawrence General Hospital after the accident with minor, non-life-threatening injuries, said Salem Fire Marshal Jeff Emanuelson. Emanuelson said he did not yet have the identities of the victims as of Thursday afternoon.

Emanuelson said he wasn’t sure what caused the large vehicle to roll several times while carrying a camping trailer, but said New Hampshire State Police were investigating the accident. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

A call first came in to the Salem Fire Department at 1:18 p.m., Emanuelson said, and rescue workers were on scene within four minutes.

The highway was completely blocked off for a brief period of time, Emanuelson said, but one lane of traffic was maintained throughout the rest of the rescue efforts.

Rescue personnel had to cut into the top of the vehicle to remove the two occupants, Emanuelson said, and both were transported to the hospital in short succession.

Workers remained on scene late into the afternoon, dumping the large mass of debris from the camping trailer into a large container at the accident site.
