NH State Police CruiserCONCORD, NH – A winter storm has created havoc on New Hampshire roads and highways.

The NH State Police continue to urge people to stay off the roadways until driving conditions improve. Since the storm began early Nov. 26, troopers from the State Police have responded to hundreds of vehicles reported to have left the roadway and dozens of motor vehicle crashes.

Five separate State Police cruisers have been struck by passing motorists today alone. In most of these incidents, the cruisers were parked at existing motor vehicle crashes when they were struck. At least one of the troopers was transported to a local hospital with reported minor injuries. If you must drive, please do so with extreme care, and give yourself added time to make it to your destination. Also, please use caution when approaching and passing emergency vehicles should you encounter them upon the highway.
