Nor’easter topples semi trucks, causes dozens of crashes


Nor’easter topples semi trucks and causes dozens more crashes in New Hampshire and Massachusetts on Wednesday. 

The storm happened on April 3rd on Interstate 89 and the Everett Turnpike in New Hampshire, and on Interstates 90, 290, 190 495 and Route 9 in Massachusetts. 

According to NBC Boston, two tractor trailers overturned on Interstate 89 in Grantham, New Hampshire. In one of those crashes, 36-year-old trucker Romero Niogre was taken to a hospital with non life threatening injuries. Niogre was cited from driving without a valid license and troopers say the incident was likely caused by inattention. 

The second semi truck rollover occurred in Warner, New Hampshire. No details have been released about that incident, reported NBC Boston.

Dozens of other crashes occurred across the region. No serious injuries were reported. Massachusetts State Police advised drivers that, “if you do not need to be on the roadways, avoid doing so.”
