Tractor-Trailers Collide On I-93

Troop B, Troop G

SALEM, N.H. – The driver of a semi-truck that crashed into another tractor-trailer was cited for driving too fast for conditions during this morning’s snowstorm.

On April 4, 2024, at approximately 9:15 a.m., State Troopers from the Troop B barracks in Bedford responded to mile marker 2.8 on Interstate 93 southbound in Salem for a crash involving two tractor-trailers. Troopers responded and found two tractor-trailers entangled, with one on its side, off the road and in the grass median. 

Through investigation, Troopers determined a white 2023 Freightliner PT126DC, driven by Brian Houle, 63, of Hubbardston, Massachusetts, had passed a second tractor-trailer unit on the right and drifted into the right-hand breakdown lane, before jackknifing and crashing into the second tractor-trailer unit, a white 2022 Freightliner PT126DC, which was being driven by Frederick Kwayisi, 44, of Salisbury, New Hampshire.

Both trucks went off the roadway as a result of the crash and came to rest in the median. There were no reported injuries and traffic was not impacted. Houle was cited for driving too fast for existing road conditions. 

Members of Troop B were assisted at the scene by Troopers from Troop G, the New Hampshire Department of Transportation and Woody’s Auto Repair and Towing. The Salem Fire Department also responded to assist with the cleanup of spilled diesel fuel. 

Anyone who may have witnessed the crash or who has additional information is asked to contact Trooper Ryan Hajjar at (603) 271-4381.
