Serious Motor Vehicle Collision, Everett Turnpike - Merrimack
On Sunday March 28, 2021 at approximately 10:15 hours, Troopers from New Hampshire State Police Troop B, along with Merrimack Fire Department, responded to a serious crash involving an Infiniti sedan on the Everett Turnpike in the Town of Merrimack, just South of the Bedford Toll. On arrival, the vehicle was located down the embankment with serious damage, and its operator was pinned inside the vehicle. Troopers were able to extract the operator from the wreck and provide first aid until paramedics arrived and were able to stabilize the operator. Traffic was able to pass in the far left lane only.
Initial reports indicated that the Infiniti was traveling South bound when the operator lost control while attempting to change lanes. The Infiniti went off the roadway and struck a tree before coming to a rest. No other vehicles were involved.
The operator of the Infiniti was identified as: Stephen Deschamps, Age: 58, Candia, NH. Deschamps sustained serious injuries and was transported to Saint Joseph Hospital in Nashua, NH.
Preliminary investigation indicates that Deschamps was traveling at an unreasonable speed during the lane change when he lost control of his motor vehicle. This was the major contributing factor in this crash and Deschamps was issued a warning for the unsafe lane change.
Anyone with additional information, is asked to contact TR. Timothy Repucci at 603-666-3333 or by email at [email protected].
Troop B Troopers were assisted at the scene by the Merrimack Police and Fire Department.
