On Sunday, June 19, 2016 at approximately 1148 hours, Troopers from the New Hampshire State Police-Troop A barracks responded to a report of a motor vehicle accident on Route 101 eastbound in the Town of Hampton, NH.

Preliminary investigation revealed that a 2014 Chrysler Avenger, being driven by Giovanni Lopes, age 22, of Rochester, NH, was traveling eastbound on Route 101. As traffic slowed, his vehicle was struck in the rear by a 2008 Jeep Wrangler being driven by Brady Hallahan, age 23, of Central Square, NY. The vehicle being driven by Lopes contained four passengers. The passenger in the left rear seat, a 14 year old male, sustained a serious head injury and was transported to the Portsmouth Regional Hospital. He was later transferred to Tufts Medical Center in Boston, MA via medical helicopter. The passenger in the right rear seat, a 16 year old female, sustained serious back and neck injuries. She is being treated at the Portsmouth Regional Hospital. Lopes was not injured in this accident. The other two passengers suffered minor injuries. Hallahan, the sole occupant of his vehicle, suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene by members of the Hampton Fire Department.

Driver inattention on the part of Hallahan appears to be a possible contributing factor in this accident. However, all aspects are being investigated.

Traffic was diverted off of exit #13 for approximately two hours as Troopers conducted their investigation.

Assisting the New Hampshire State Police at the scene were the Hampton Police Department, the Hampton Fire Department, and the New Hampshire State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit.

This accident remains under investigation by Trooper Kevin Devlin. Anyone with information pertaining to this accident is asked to contact Trooper Devlin, NH State Police-Troop A at (603) 223-8490.
