Motor Vehicle Crash/Partial Interstate Closure

On May 7 at approximately 2:14 p.m., Troopers from Troop D and the Special Enforcement Unit responded to Interstate 89 northbound near mile marker 16 in Warner for the report of a motor vehicle crash in the median.

Troopers located a 2006 Kia Sedona Van, Silver in color, approximately 150' off the roadway partially submerged in water. Witnesses located and assisted the driver from the vehicle and to a location where EMS personnel treated the driver and he was transported to Concord Hospital to be treated for suspected non-life threatening injuries.

The driver was identified to be one John Wolfgang, age 75, Milford, NH.

Investigation revealed Wolfgang was traveling northbound on Interstate 89 when he fell asleep and drifted off the left side of the roadway striking a sign and traveling approximately 450' before coming to rest in a water bog. As a result of the crash the high speed lane was closed during the investigation and removal of the vehicle.

Anyone who witnessed the crash or who has information about it is requested to please contact TFC Michael Berntsen at 603-223-4381.
