UPDATE: Multiple crashes on I-93 in Concord began with car hitting deer
CONCORD — Multiple crashes occurred near Exit 14 on I-93 Tuesday afternoon south of Concord.
The highway was closed for around an hour after the accidents due to the need to clear the vehicles involved and the debris that was obstructing the road.
The initial collision involved a Nissan Sentra which struck a deer in the passing lane. After hitting the deer, the Sentra was then rear-ended by a tractor-trailer.
The initial crash appears to have caused a pile-up behind it, but a full report had not been issued at the time of this article.
The occupants of the Nissan Sentra were transported to Concord Hospital for treatment of serious injuries.
Witnesses to the crashes are asked to call State Trooper Derek Myrdek at (603) 271-3636.
