CANTERBURY -- A driver, who was the subject of a police welfare check Saturday night, was found dead Monday morning in a crashed car off Interstate 93 in Canterbury.
State police are withholding the name of the driver, pending notification of family members.
According to a news release, just after 7 a.m. Monday New Hampshire State Police from Troop D responded to a report of a vehicle off the right side of the road on I-93 South in Canterbury.
Troopers located a sedan off the right side of the road, partially concealed within the tree line. The car's lone occupant -- the driver -- was dead.
An initial at-scene investigation indicates the car was traveling south on I-93 when it veered right off the road and struck a tree, police said.
The driver had been the subject of a "check the welfare" police broadcast, per the family's request, about 9:30 p.m. Saturday, according to state police.
At 10 a.m. on Monday, State Police, Canterbury Fire and Rescue and wrecker crews were still on the scene.
