On October 2, 2018 troopers from the NHSP Troop D barracks responded to the report of crash involving a commercial motor vehicle on Interstate 89 South in Grantham, NH. Upon arrival, Troopers discovered that the commercial motor vehicle had rolled over onto its side and came to final rest in the median of the interstate.

The cause of the collision is still under investigation, however distracted driving appears to be a casual factor in the collision.

The driver, Dominique Bessette, 48, was treated at the scene by EMS and declined further medical treatment.

The operator is an employee of Southbec Express and was hauling a full-load of roofing shingles, traveling from Bedford Quebec and enroute to Gray, Maine.

NHSP Troop G responded to the scene to assist in the investigation.

Interstate 89 South in the Grantham area will be closed intermittently while the commercial motor vehicle is removed from the scene.

Anyone who has any information regarding the crash is asked to contact Trooper Matthew Field at 603-223-4381 or
