New Hampshire Motor Vehicle Accident Kills One, Injures Six
A three-vehicle accident on I-95 this week killed one person and injured six others according to State Police. According to the police report, just after 9:00pm, a Freightliner tractor trailer collided with a maroon Honda Accord in the north lanes of the highway. Both vehicles then crossed the median and hit a silver Honda Accord.
The maroon Honda wound up lodged beneath the truck after they came to rest in the woods next to the road. A passenger in the silver Honda was killed when it was hit by the oncoming vehicles.
The driver of the vehicle trapped beneath the truck had to have its roof cut off so the driver could be extracted. Two patients were seriously injured, while four others had less serious injuries. One of these was a young girl, a passenger of the Honda beneath the truck who was spotted limping around just after the accident occurred.
The accident closed the highway in both directions for hours.

Kansas City Police Department Employee Hit by Vehicle at DUI Checkpoint
Early last month, the Missouri Highway Patrol was conducting a sobriety checkpoint in Kansas City when one of the drivers tried to leave the line rather than be checked. He accelerated and swerved out of the line, hitting a KCPD mechanic. The driver also hit a police cruiser parked nearby.
The mechanic was knocked to the top of the car, but was unhurt. However, the driver began to speed up rather than slow down. Hanging onto the arm of a windshield wiper, the mechanic said he was looking eye to eye with the driver, even as he began to swerve to knock the mechanic off the car.
The vehicle hit speeds of 100mph as it was followed by patrol cars through the streets.
Eventually, the mechanic was thrown from the vehicle. His right knee was shattered when he was thrown.
Police found the vehicle abandoned nearby, but were able to track down the suspect because the vehicle was a rental.
