Tractor Trailer Overturns on Interstate 89 in Warner

On July 9, 2019 at approximately 5:24 a.m., the New Hampshire State Police Troop D was notified of a motor vehicle crash involving a tractor trailer along Interstate 89 South Bound in the town of Warner, NH. Upon the arrival of Troopers at the scene, they learned that a 2014 Western Star tractor towing a 2015 East trailer driven by Shilo White, age 46, of Charlestown, NH, was traveling along the Exit 9 on ramp to Interstate 89 South Bound. The tractor trailer was fully loaded, hauling trash from Claremont, NH to Rochester, NH.

Initial investigation indicated that the vehicle was traveling too fast through the curve of the on ramp, causing the tractor trailer to roll over and slide into the travel portion of the highway. The tractor trailer continued to slid into the path of a 2007 Dodge Dakota, operated by Tyler Cushman, age 25, of Concord, NH. Cushman attempted to avoid a collision by slowing down and changing lanes, but came to a rest amongst the debris that spilled from the tractor trailer. Neither driver was injured as a result of the collision. White was issued a summons for speeding.

Due to the crash involving a commercial motor vehicle, members of New Hampshire State Police – Troop G were contacted. Members of Troop G are highly skilled Troopers who have received specialized training to conduct roadside inspections of commercial motor vehicles. As a result of the commercial motor vehicle inspection, the tractor, trailer, and driver were placed out of service.

S. G Reed was contacted to remove the tractor trailer from the scene as well as clean up debris that spilled onto the highway. The New Hampshire Department of Transportation and the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services were contacted to facilitate cleanup of trash that spilled into the Warner River and fluids that spilled from the tractor trailer.

As a result of the crash, Interstate 89 South Bound was shut down for several hours and traffic was diverted around the scene at Exit 9.

New Hampshire State Police – Troop D was assisted at the scene by the New Hampshire State Police – Troop G, Warner Fire Department, New Hampshire Department of Transportation, and the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services.

The collision remains under investigation by Trooper Anthony Pratt. Anyone with information pertaining to this crash is asked to contact Tr. Pratt, New Hampshire State Police – Troop D, at 603-223-8496.
