Jackknife Tractor Trailer, I-93 Manchester

On Wednesday, June 27th 2018 at 2117 hours, Troopers from The New Hampshire State Police, Troop B Barracks, Bedford, received a report of a jackknifed tractor trailer on I-93S at Mile Marker 18.8. Troopers arrived on scene along with the Manchester Fire Department and saw a jackknifed tractor trailer owned by JB Hunt identified as 2017 White Freightliner, OK Registration2XJ813, blocking two lanes of travel. Troopers met with the operator, identified as Orlando Flores Robles, Age 37, Providence, RI, who explained that he was traveling south on I-93, when the trailer began to hydroplane. The operator subsequently lost control as the Unit jackknifed and came to final rest against the guardrail in the breakdown lane. Traffic was able to utilize the high speed breakdown lane to continue past the crash scene.

No injuries were reported and the tractor trailer unit was towed from the scene by RGA Towing.

The operator was found at fault for traveling too fast for conditions.

The New Hampshire State Police were assisted on scene by the Manchester Fire Department and RGA Towing.

The collision is currently under investigation and anyone with information pertaining to this incident is urged to contact Trooper Wolak at (603) 223-4381 or by email at matthew.wolak@dos.nh.gov.
