Slow going and dozens of accidents across southern New Hampshire
Just before 11 a.m., State Police closed Interstate 93 northbound just south of the Interstate 89 junction in Bow due to multiple accidents.
State Police from Troop A in Epping responded to as many as 20 accidents on Route 101 and Interstate 95 since 6 a.m., State Police Lt. Chris Vetter said.
Police were still handing eight accidents on the two major highways at 10:30 a.m. while Troop B in Bedford had troopers at six accidents in Hillsborough County, Vetter said.
Many of the accidents involved vehicles sliding off the highway and into the median, in some cases rolling over, Vetter said.
"Every one that I've seen has been speed related," he said.
Among the accidents was a garbage truck that spun out of control and went off Interstate 95 northbound in Greenland.
A fire engine responding to a call also reportedly ended up partially on its side on I-95 in North Hampton.
Vetter said drivers need to be aware that while drivers may see bare pavement as the snow blows around, they're still slippery.
"Staying off the roads is optimal, but if you have to drive drive slow," he said.
