Motor Vehicle Crash, I-95 Exit 3A off ramp, Portsmouth

On Sunday September 2, 2018, at approximately 6:15 am, Troopers from the NH State Police Troop-A barracks responded to a motor vehicle crash in the area of the I-95, exit 3A southbound off ramp in the City of Portsmouth. On scene investigation revealed that a 2015 Chevy Equinox being driven by Alexander Matthews, 33, of Somersworth, NH was traveling southbound on I-95 in Portsmouth. As Mr. Matthews neared exit 3A, he drove off the travel portion of the roadway and struck a tree head on. The ramp was closed for less than an hour, and there was minimal impact to traffic. It appears fatigue may have been a contributing factor in the causation of this crash.

Mr. Matthews sustained serious but non-life threatening injuries, and he was transported to the Portsmouth Regional Hospital.

The NH State Police were assisted by the Portsmouth Police and Fire Departments.
