HOOKSETT, NH — On October 17, 2019, at approximately 1:01 p.m., Troopers from the New Hampshire State Police-Troop B Barracks responded to a motor vehicle crash on Interstate 93 southbound, south of the Hooksett Tolls.
The Preliminary investigation revealed that a 2019 Honda Accord, driven by Ashwayne Rose, 19, of Manchester, was traveling southbound on Interstate 93 when he attempted to cross several lanes of heavy traffic in a posted 65 mph zone (45 mph minimum). This movement was reported to be at less than 5 mph and in a perpendicular manner to oncoming traffic.
The investigation revealed that the above action caused a Freightliner commercial vehicle, also traveling south, being operated by Christopher Murphy, 34, of Hebron to collide with the Accord.

Interstate 93 south remained open during the investigation.
Ashwayne Rose was subsequently arrested for operating after suspension, 2nd offense and reckless operation.
Assisting the New Hampshire State Police at the scene was The New Hampshire Fish and Game, Hooksett Fire and Rescue, and Concord Rescue. The cement truck was towed from the scene by Duval’s Heavy Duty Towing service.
