Motor Vehicle Crash, Franconia Notch Parkway

On 1 July 2020 at approximately 5:50 am the New Hampshire State Police received the report of a motor vehicle collision on Interstate 93 within Franconia Notch. Troopers from Troop F and Troop G responded to the scene and found that a 2016 Kenworth truck had struck the guardrail and damaged approximately 300 feet of the center guardrail that divides the north and southbound lanes. There were no injuries in the crash and no other vehicles were involved. The cause of the crash appears to be operator fatigue.

Troopers are currently on scene investigating and assisting with the vehicle removal and road closure. The Franconia Fire Department and NH Department of Environmental Services are also on scene assisting with a fuel and oil spill. NH Department of Transportation currently has the northbound lane closed and traffic is being diverted through the Boise Rock rest area until the vehicle is removed and a temporary divider can be installed. Please use caution in this area as the northbound lane will be likely closed for the rest of the day.
