Motor Vehicle Accident, Route 101 Eastbound/Interstate 95 Ramp

On Thursday, January 12, 2017, at approximately 10:43 a.m., Troopers assigned to the New Hampshire State Police Troop A barracks responded to a report of single motor vehicle accident on the ramp to Interstate 95 from Route 101 eastbound in the Town of Hampton, NH.

Preliminary investigation revealed that a 2014 Volvo tractor-trailer unit, being driven by Kenmooah Gibson, Jr., age 23, of West Haven, CT, was exiting Route 101 eastbound and onto the ramp to Interstate 95. The vehicle went off the left side of the roadway and overturned, spilling a large amount of lumber onto the left shoulder. The vehicle came to a final rest on its left side.

Kenmooah sustained non-life threatening injuries and was transported to the Portsmouth Regional Hospital. There were no passengers.

There were no other vehicles involved in this accident.

All aspects of this accident are under investigation. However, it appears that speed is a contributing factor. No charges have been filed at this time.

The ramp to Interstate 95 was closed at 11:30 a.m. and is expected to reopen before 5 p.m.as cleanup operations are ongoing. Traffic is being diverted to exit #13.

The New Hampshire State Police were assisted at the scene by members of the Hampton Police Department, the Hampton Fire Department, The New Hampshire State Police Commercial Vehicle Unit, The New Hampshire State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit, and the New Hampshire Department of Transportation.

This accident remains under investigation by Trooper Erik Willett. Anyone with information pertaining to this accident is asked to call Trooper Willett/NH State Police/Troop A at 603-223-8490.
