At approximately 4:45p.m., Troopers from the New Hampshire State Police Troop D responded to NH Route 11 near the intersection of NH Route 4A in the Town of Andover, NH for a reported motor vehicle crash involving a box truck and a motorcycle.

Troopers arrived on the scene to find Andover Fire and EMS attending to the motorcycle operator.

Route 11 was closed for approximately 3 ½ hours while traffic was diverted around the scene with minimal impact.

Troopers were assisted on scene by the Andover Police Department and the Andover Fire and EMS and New London EMS.
