Motor Vehicle Accident, Everett Turnpike South, Merrimack

On 04/19/18 at approximately 3:15 A.M. Troopers from the New Hampshire State Police Troop B Barracks in Bedford and personnel from the Merrimack Fire Department, responded to a motor vehicle accident on the F.E. Everett Turnpike South, north of exit 12 in Merrimack New Hampshire.

On arrival, they found that 31 year old Claudio Barros of Brockton Massachusetts was driving southbound on the F.E. Everett Turnpike in a 2014 Freightliner box truck when he swerved to miss an animal in the roadway. Barros lost control of the vehicle and struck the center median barrier, rolling the box truck over in the middle of the Turnpike. Emergency responders and the New Hampshire DOT worked diligently on cleaning up the crash scene, but as a result traffic was delayed for several hours in this area.

Barros suffered minor injuries and was transported to Saint Joseph's hospital for treatment. Anyone with further information related to this crash is asked to contact Trooper Wood at 603-666-3333.
