Canterbury Car Accident on I-93 Leaves Several Injured
A Canterbury car accident involving as many as 40 vehicles, including a school bus and a tour bus, leaves nine people injured. The incident occurred at approximately 12:00 PM on Saturday morning, January 8, 2010, along Interstate 93.
According to local authorities, slippery road conditions resulting from a recent snowfall led to a 40-vehicle pileup along I-93 in Canterbury. The New Hampshire State Police reported that a school bus and a tour bus were involved in the pileup.
Rescue crews transported nine victims to Concord Hospital where they were treated for minor injuries sustained in the accident. Seven of the victims were released by 5:30 that same evening. The other two victims remained for additional observation. Their conditions were not immediately made known, but their injuries were all considered to be non-life threatening.
The southbound lanes of I-93 were shut down for over an hour as crews cleared the accident scene. The southbound lanes were reopened approximately 80 minutes following the crash.
The multi-vehicle Canterbury car accident is still under investigation by local authorities. It was unclear as to what may have caused the accident.
This is a terrible tragedy and we wish all the victims a speedy recovery during this hard time.
