Man ejected and pinned by vehicle suffers minor injuries
NORTHFIELD – A man driving a pickup truck northbound on Interstate 93 near the Northfield-Tilton town line lost control of his truck, was ejected and then pinned underneath late Thursday afternoon.
The man, who was not local to the area and was in his 30s, suffered only minor injuries, according to Tilton-Northfield Fire Department Lt. Sean Valovanie.
About five inches of snow had fallen and the roads were slippery but the accident, which occurred at about 3:10 p.m. and shut down parts of the southbound lane for a period, was a bit of a mystery.
“I’m still not quite sure how it happened,” Valovanie said. “Apparently the driver slid off into the median, was ejected from his truck, and then the truck landed tires down on top of him. And he only had minor injuries.”
The driver, whose name was not released, was taken to Concord Hospital and released. His truck had a plow on the front end.
