CONCORD — A driver was ejected and died as a result of her injuries after losing control of her SUV on Interstate 89 Friday night.
N.H. State Police said around 8:44 p.m., they received a report of a vehicle rollover just south of Exit 2.
Witnesses told police that a 2000 Ford Explorer had been traveling southbound on Interstate 89 at an excessive speed when it encountered slower moving traffic and swerved to avoid hitting the traffic.
Police said the driver reportedly lost control of the SUV and it rolled over into the median. The driver, Amanda Hadley, 38 of Rowley, Massachusetts, was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle. Hadley succumbed to her injuries at the scene.
Two other passengers were transported to Concord Hospital for the treatment of minor injuries, according to police. They said it appears that speed was contributing factor in the crash.
Police said toxicology tests are being performed, but the results could take several weeks to be analyzed.
