UPDATE: Contents in truck blew up during crash, 12 injuries confirmed in Ashland


ASHLAND - Contents and boxes in a truck that was involved in a major crash on Interstate 93 North near Exit 24 on Friday morning blew up according to NH1's Kevin Landrigan.

The crash involved about 35 cars. No fatalities have been reported. 12 injuries have been confirmed none of which were life-threatening.

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation said a sudden and fast-moving snow squall was suspected of causing the accident.

This isn't the first time there's been a huge pileup in the Granite State.

In 2009, 12 people were hurt in a 59-car pileup on I-93 in Derry, and in 2012, five people were injured in a 20-car crash on I-93 in New Hampton.

Roads opened again in Ashland at about 1:30 p.m. Friday afternoon.
