A male subject was found to be out of the vehicle and was determined to be the operator identified as, Ahmed Al Husseini, age 24, of Manchester, NH. Al Husseini had sustained significant injury in the collision and was transported to Speare Memorial Hospital in Plymouth, New Hampshire where he succumbed to those injuries and was pronounced deceased.
