On Thursday, February 07, 2019 at approximately 12:55 a.m., Troopers from the New Hampshire State Police Troop-A responded to Interstate 95 in the Town of Greenland for a collision involving a commercial motor vehicle and pickup truck. Initial on-scene investigation revealed that a 2006 Dodge Dakota being driven by Kyle Lehoullier, age 23, of Rochester, New Hampshire was traveling northbound in the vicinity of mile marker 12 when he lost control of his vehicle. After losing control Lehoullier traveled from the left most lane across all northbound lanes of travel and struck the undercarriage of a fifty-three foot box trailer being hauled by a 2017 Peterbilt truck. This commercial vehicle was driven by Steve Mercie, age 48, of Quebec, Canada. The force of this impact caused the Dodge Dakota to become wedged under the trailer resulting in it being dragged for several hundred feet until Mercie was able to bring his vehicle to a safe stop.

Lehoullier was transported to the Portsmouth Regional Hospital for minor injuries sustained during this collision. A portion of Interstate 95 North was closed for approximately 2 hours while the crash was investigated.

As a result of this investigation Lehoullier was arrested and charged with Driving While Intoxicated. He was released on bail and ordered to appear in the 10th Circuit Portsmouth District Court on February 20, 2019 for arraignment.

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 the Greenland Police and Fire Departments.

Anyone with information pertaining to this crash is asked to contact Tr. Preston Leonard of the New Hampshire State Police, Troop-A Barracks at (603)679-3333 or preston.leonard@dos.nh.gov.
