On Sunday morning, snow piling up on the highway forced traffic into a single lane. An estimated 59 vehicles, including 46 cars, eight lightweight trucks, three buses, and two tractor trailer trucks, collided on Interstate 93 in Derry, New Hampshire, but fortunately no one was killed.
Of the one hundred people involved in the collision, only fourteen were transported to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries. A bus carrying the University of Massachusetts at Boston women’s ice hockey team to game in Vermont was involved in the crash, but none of the players were injured. They returned to Boston on another bus.
The traffic accident occurred along an 18-mile stretch of highway that has experienced several other accident in the past. An $800 million improvement project is planned to add an additional two lane of traffic. New Hampshire state police are investigating the accident.
