Tractor Trailer Incident, F.E. Everett Turnpike, Nashua

On Friday November 11, 2016 at approximately 07:42 hours, NH State Police Troop-B received a call reference a Tractor Trailer truck on fire in the area on Exit # 5 in Nashua. Troopers from Troop B and the Nashua Fire responded and determined that the trailer was not on fire, but rather it had collapsed and was completely disabled.

Initial investigation revealed that the trailer was loaded by Hudson RPM out of Nashua, NH. The trailer was leased to Recycling Associates Inc. of Nashua, NH who was transporting for Gringeri Lux Tranportation Inc. out of Hudson, NH.

The investigation revealed that the trailer was improperly loaded resulting in undue stress on the frame causing it to fail.

NH State Police Troop-B was assisted by the Troop-G Motor Carrier Unit as well as NH DOT, the Nashua Police Department and the Nashua Fire Department. The Exit # 5A off-ramp and by-pass ramp of the turnpike were closed for several hours while crews off loaded the cargo on to other trucks. The FE Everett Turnpike northbound remained open while the clean-up occurred.
