A 56-year-old motorist died Sunday during a multi-car crash on Interstate 95 in Hampton Falls, New Hampshire that left several people injured.
At 7:50 p.m., state troopers were notified of a four-car crash that extended over both the northbound and southbound lanes of the interstate.
An initial investigation found that Siow Chang of Falmouth, Maine was driving a 2017 Honda CR-V on a northbound lane when the car stopped for an unknown reason. A Toyota Tacoma rear-ended Chang’s vehicle after being unable to avoid the crash due to surrounding traffic, according to state police.
The crash caused Chang’s vehicle to cross the center median and enter the southbound lane, causing a 2016 Ford Transit van to crash the motorist's car. That van was then struck by a 2006 Ford Escape.
All the other drivers and passengers involved were taken to hospitals to treat non-life threatening injuries. Their conditions were not immediately clear.
A portion of the north and southbound lanes were closed for several hours during the investigation. The severity of the crash prompted the New Hampshire Collision Analysis Reconstruction Unit to assist in the investigation.
