On Wednesday, November 30, 2016, at approximately 2352 hours, troopers assigned to the New Hampshire State Police Troop A barracks responded to a report of a motor vehicle accident on Interstate 95 northbound at the entrance to the Seabrook Rest Area, in the town of Seabrook. Upon arrival troopers encountered Unit #1, a gray, heavily damaged, 2006 Audi A4 being operated by Nicholas Blangiardi, age 27, of Eliot, Maine, off the right or east side of the roadway along the tree line.

Preliminary investigation revealed that Unit #1 was traveling northbound on Interstate 95 in lane #1. Roadway evidence indicates that for reasons that remain under investigation, Mr. Blangiardi left the roadway just south of the entrance to the Seabrook Rest Area, jumped the curb, and drove head on into a large tree along the wood line.

The entrance ramp to the Seabrook Rest Area was shut down for approximately one hour while the crash was investigated and the vehicle was removed from the scene. The New Hampshire State Police were assisted at the scene by members of the Seabrook Police Department and the Seabrook Fire and Rescue.

Mr. Blangiardi was ultimately placed under arrest and he was charged with DWI. Mr. Blangiardi is scheduled to be arraigned on December 8, 2016, at 0800 hours in the 10th Circuit Court, District Division-Seabrook.

Although alcohol appears to be a factor in the causation of this crash, this incident remains under investigation. Anyone with information pertaining to this incident is asked to contact Trooper Matheus Candido, New Hampshire State Police, Troop-A, at (603)223-8490.
