NASHUA, N.H. – The New Hampshire State Police is actively investigating an early-morning crash involving a tanker truck.

At 12:46 a.m. today, July 1, State Troopers from the Troop B barracks responded to a crash with reported injuries involving a tractor-trailer on the F.E.

The tanker being hauled then overturned and rolled into the wood line. The contents of the tanker have remained contained. The right two northbound lanes of the F.E. Everett Turnpike will remain closed into the early afternoon while the crash scene is investigated and the tanker truck is removed.
