On Thursday September 1, 2016 at approximately 5:30 p.m. (1730 hours) the Winchester Police Department was notified and responded to a motor vehicle collision located on NH Route 10 in the Town of Winchester, New Hampshire approximately 2 miles north of the Northfield Massachusetts State Line.

Upon arrival the at-scene investigation revealed a red 1998 Honda Civic operated by Eric Williams age 29 of Springfield, Massachusetts, was traveling northbound on NH Route 10. Simultaneously a silver 2009 Subaru Forester operated by Gregory Wilson age 66, of Jacksonville, Vermont was traveling southbound on NH Route 10.

For unknown reasons at this time the operator of the Honda Civic crossed over the center double yellow lines into the southbound lane of travel before colliding with the Subaru Forester in a near head on collision.

As a result of this the operator of the Honda Civic suffered life threatening injuries in which he succumbed to those injuries at the Cheshire Medical Center in Keene, New Hampshire. The operator of the Subaru Forester suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to Franklin Medical Center in Greenfield, Massachusetts.

Assisting on scene were members of the NH State Police Troop C Barracks, Winchester Police Department, Winchester Fire & Rescue/EMS Crews and Northfield Massachusetts Police.

At this time the crash investigation is being handled by the State Police Collision Analysis & Reconstruction Unit (C.A.R. Unit).
