Two Accidents on I-93 on July 4

Northbound traffic on Interstate 93 in the Manchester-Londonderry area was a nightmare for much of the morning on Monday, July 4,  due to two separate lane closures caused by accidents.

The most serious involved a tractor trailer that crashed into the woods between exits 5 and 6 near the Manchester-Londonderry town line at about 7 a.m. The tractor trailer was well off the road and into the woods, but no one was injured.

The right lane was closed and the scene was not cleared until just before noon.

About an hour after that scene was cleared, the right northbound lane of I-93 was briefly closed again just 10 miles south in Derry, due to a vehicle fire.
