On Thursday, November 3rd at approximately 7:48 a.m., Troopers assigned to the New Hampshire State Police Troop A barracks were requested by the Seabrook Police Department to respond to a two vehicle motor vehicle accident on Route 286 in Seabrook.

Preliminary investigation revealed that a 2004 Ford Ranger, a Lebanon, NH Department of Public Works pick-up truck, being driven by Christopher Ciardelli, age 52 of Lebanon, NH was traveling westbound on Route 286 when he attempted a left turn onto South Main Street. The second vehicle, a 2013 Ford Expedition, a fully marked Seabrook Police cruiser, being driven by Officer Justin Murphy, age 32, was traveling eastbound.
