Commercial Car Carrier Crash

Warner, New Hampshire – On January 23, 2023 a winter storm was ongoing, producing significant amounts of heavy snow. There were areas of white out conditions and the roadways were snow covered making for hazardous traveling conditions. Due to this, Department of Transportation had posted a reduced speed limit of 45MPH on the Interstates in this area. At approximately 10:31 AM, New Hampshire State Police Troop D responded to a report of a commercial motor vehicle car carrier that had gone off the roadway on Interstate 89 south, near mile marker 21.8 in the town of Warner, NH.

Troopers arrived on scene to find a fully loaded car carrier off the roadway to the right hand side. One of the vehicles that was loaded on top of the car carrier became dislodged and rolled off and onto the car carrier before coming to a final rest in the right travel lane. The lone operator of the car carrier was identified as
Alex Ferguson, Age: 62, Stamford, CT

He was transported to Concord hospital for what is believed to be minor injuries.

The right lane was shut down for several hours as Patten's heavy-duty wrecker service worked on removing the car carrier. New Hampshire State Police was assisted on scene with the lane closure by New Hampshire Department of Transportation.
