In July 2021, a four-vehicle collision (including a semi-trailer truck) shut down several lanes of traffic on I-93 in New Hampshire.

ACCIDENTS CAUSED BY TEXTING WHILE DRIVING IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
Texting while driving in NH is against the law and for good reason. Texting involves manual, visual, and cognitive distraction simultaneously. Sending or reading a text takes your eyes off the road for an average of 4.6 seconds. At 55 mph, that’s the equivalent of driving the length of an entire football field, blindfolded.

Hurricane Irene’s recent impact on the shores of New England left behind several injured people and millions of dollars in property damage. Most New Hampshire residents were prepared for the dangers, since we know what kind of injuries severe weather can cause. However, it’s also important to consider dangers that linger even after a hurricane has passed. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) offer the following tips for post-hurricane safety and injury prevention.
- Use generators cautiously. If you’re using a generator for power, never run the generator indoors. Instead, choose an outdoor location with good air circulation. Generators create carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless gas that can quickly kill or severely injure people and pets.
- Keep grills and camp stoves outside. Like generators, charcoal grills and camp stoves produce carbon monoxide when burning. They are also a fire hazard, so keep them well away from buildings. Do not wear loose clothing or let children or pets play on or near charcoal grills or camp stoves.
A Vermont man was killed in a logging accident recently as he was working with a team to cut down and remove trees from a site near Sullivan, according to an article in the Keene Sentinel. The accident occurred in a wooded area off South Road near Hubbard Road.
When the accident occurred, the man was operating a skidder, which is a piece of heavy machinery used to drag cut trees out of a wooded area. A large tree smashed through the cab of the skidder, striking the man. His assistant called for rescue workers, but the man had died of his injuries by the time emergency medical personnel got to the scene, according to the New Hampshire State Police, who also responded.
Investigators are still examining the site of the accident for clues as to its cause. They are not yet certain whether the tree that crashed through the skidder’s cab was the same tree the workers were trying to take down with the skidder, or if the equipment got caught on another tree, which then came down. The man had been an employee of the logging company for about three years.
