New Hampshire State Police are investigating a multi-vehicle crash that claimed two lives in Lee.
A vehicle driven by Allan Hardy, 36, of North Hampton, apparently veered into an oncoming car Friday afternoon on Route 125, WMUR-TV reported. Hardy died from his injuries at a hospital while the other driver, Jose Olivares, 42, of Manchester, died at the scene, the TV station reported.
A third vehicle crashed while trying to avoid the collision but that driver was not hurt, police said.
The highway was closed for more than three hours while a reconstruction team investigated.
