MANCHESTER, NH – An SUV pulling a travel trailer was heading north on I-93 July 6 between Exits 9N and 10 when it lost control. The trailer and the SUV rolled over and slid across the highway coming to rest on the right side of 93 northbound.

Two adults in the vehicle and a dog were rescued from the vehicle by Manchester Fire and Hooksett Fire. NH State Police shut down the two right-hand lanes of travel while emergency crews dealt with the situation. The male, who was driving, was transported to a local hospital by AMR with a head injury which appeared to be non life-threatening. The female passenger and the dog were visibly shaken, but did not require transport.

The accident, which happened at approximately 2:30 p.m., backed traffic up for miles, adding to the normally heavy Friday northbound traffic in the area. The lanes of travel were restricted while Duval’s Towing brought multiple pieces of heavy-duty equipment to remove the vehicles from the scene.  The highway was restricted for approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes, and was cleared at approximately 4:45 p.m.

State Police handled the accident, traffic control, and also transported the female her dog safely off the highway to an awaiting relative.
