Commercial Motor Vehicle Crash, Interstate 95, North Hampton

On Monday, July 02, 2018 at approximately 10:10 p.m., Troopers from the New Hampshire State Police Troop-A responded to Interstate 95 in the Town of North Hampton for a report of a commercial motor vehicle crash. Initial on-scene investigation revealed that a 1995 Peterbilt with a fifty-three foot box trailer being driven by John Keller, age 49, of Dracut, Massachusetts, was traveling southbound when Keller lost control of his vehicle. The vehicle left the travel portion of the roadway in the vicinity of mile marker 8.4 and came to a final rest after striking a series of trees along the western shoulder. The force of the impact caused the trailer to rupture and spill its cargo of bottled water along the shoulder of the Interstate. Although initially transported to the Portsmouth Regional Hospital Keller sustained no significant injuries during this collision. A portion of Interstate 95 southbound was closed for approximately 5 hours while the tractor and trailer were recovered.

As a result of this investigation Keller was arrested and charged with Driving While Intoxicated. He was released on bail and is scheduled to appear in the 10th Circuit-Seabrook District-Court on July 26, 2018.

The New Hampshire State Police Troop-A were assisted at the scene by NH State Police Troop-G Commercial Motor Vehicle Enforcement Unit as well as members of NH Department of Transportation, the North Hampton Fire Department, and National Wrecker Service.

Anyone with information pertaining to this crash is asked to contact Trooper Dan Peete of the New Hampshire State Police, Troop-A Barracks at (603)679-3333 or daniel.peete@dos.nh.gov.
