Jackknifed trailer blocks I-93 in Manchester


MANCHESTER - A jackknifed trailer blocked much of southbound Interstate 93 on Monday night, narrowing traffic through a scene of flares and flashing lights seen throughout the state as some drivers failed to navigate a few inches of snow.

The smell of diesel lingered after the tractor portion had been removed, but the red Coca-Cola trailer remained stuck just next to the frozen waters of Stevens Pond and slightly northwest of the offshoot to eastbound Route 101.

New Hampshire State Police said it was a busy night, but so far no major injuries had been reported.
