ASHLAND, N.H. — A New Hampshire State Police spokesman says 35 vehicles are involved in two separate pileups on Interstate 93 after some fast-moving snow squalls.
Lt. Jerry Maslan says there have been some injuries, but they are not considered to be life-threatening. Calls about the accidents started coming in at about 9:45 a.m. Friday.
Maslan said one of the crashes involved a truck trailer that caught fire after a vehicle went underneath it. It wasn’t known what the trailer was carrying, but aerial footage of the crashes show boxes strewn about and crumpled cars.
