Man Killed In NH Toll Plaza Crash Allegedly Drove 100+ MPH

HOOKSETT, N.H. (AP) – New Hampshire police are working to identify the driver who died after crashing into the Hooksett toll plaza over the weekend.

Investigators believe the man is a foreign college student attending a local university on a student visa.

New Hampshire State Police say the vehicle was traveling at an extremely high rate of speed when it crashed into the toll plaza from the EZ-Pass lane on Saturday. Witnesses report that the vehicle was traveling more than 100 miles per hour. There was no attendant in the toll booth at the time.

The vehicle, which was borrowed from another college student, was completely destroyed.

Authorities say the car is being inspected to rule out mechanical failure as the cause of the crash.

Anyone with information about the crash or driver is urged to call New Hampshire State Police Troop B.
