On election night last week, as everyone attempted to head to the polls during the evening commute, nine car accidents occurred in just over two hours in southern New Hampshire. One resulted in a temporary lane closure, while another sent an individual to the hospital.
Five of the accidents, including one involving six vehicles, happened along the Everett Turnpike near Nashua. Four others were split between I-293 in Manchester and I-93 in Windham.
One of the six people involved in the pileup had to be taken to an area hospital for treatment. Though reports indicated that their injuries were not life-threatening, details were not released about the particular nature of the wounds. The large crash prompted the closure of one lane of the Turnpike.
The accident happened just before 6 p.m. near Exit 6. Bryan Plamondon of the New Hampshire State Police is leading the ongoing investigation into what brought about the collision. A motorcycle, three sedans and two SUVs were involved, and the drivers were the only occupant in each vehicle, ranging from 16 to 65 years of age.
After the chaotic two hours had come to a close, police said that a total of 23 cars had been involved in the collisions.
Details were not available on whether any of the crashes on the interstate highways had injured anyone, nor were potential causes of those accidents made known to media.
