Fatal Motor Vehicle Crash, Cornish

On Thursday May 3, 2018 at approximately 1:50p.m. New Hampshire State Police Communications received a call regarding a two vehicle collision in Cornish. The New Hampshire State Police were on-call for Cornish at the time of the collision, and the Plainfield Police Department was requested to respond until Troopers could arrive on scene. Once on scene, it was determined that a head on-collision had occurred between a Grey 2005 Ford Taurus, registered out of Claremont, NH, with three occupants, and a 2017 International 1300FBC, registered to Loomis Armored US LLC, driven by Robert Santos.

The New Hampshire State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction (CAR) Unit was called to investigate this collision. Preliminary investigation indicates that the Taurus was northbound on Route 12A when it came into the southbound lane. The Loomis Truck was unable to avoid a collision, and the two vehicles collided. All of the occupants of the Taurus received fatal injuries as a result of this collision. The driver of the Loomis truck, and his passenger, received no injuries. Route 12A was closed as a result of this collision. The New Hampshire State Police CAR Unit was assisted on scene by the Cornish Fire Department, Windsor Fire Department, Plainfield Police Department, Claremont Police Department, New Hampshire State Police Troop C, and New Hampshire State Police Troop G.

This collision remains under investigation at this time. The identities of the occupants of the Taurus are being withheld, pending next of kin notification.
