    Salem Police

    Police in Salem, New Hampshire, are investigating a two-car crash that killed one person and injured another.

    Salem police say one of the drivers, identified as 33-year-old Phillip Carter of Salem, was ejected Tuesday night on Route 28.

    Police said he was attempting to pull out of the Salem Ford parking lot and travel north on Route 28 when he was struck by a southbound car driven by 26-year-old Michael Gomez of Lowell, Massachusetts. The impact sheered Carter's vehicle in half. He later died at Massachusetts General Hospital.

    Gomez was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Lawrence General Hospital.

    Police said speed was considered a contributing factor to the crash. Investigators are awaiting the results of toxicology tests to determine if drugs and/or alcohol may have also contributed to the collision.
