No injuries in 14-car Friday morning I-89 pile-up

Fatal crash on I-91 in Hartford

Interstate 89 northbound has reopened between Georgia and St. Albans following a multi-vehicle crash Friday morning, Feb. 24, state police say.

Only minor injuries were reported in the incident, which involved approximately 14 vehicles and occurred at about 8:05 a.m. during snow and blowing snow just north of the Georgia rest area. The highway’s northbound lanes were closed for about an hour, reopening just after 9 a.m.

Multiple troopers and other first responders were on the scene to assist motorists and clear the crash. Although the road has reopened, the Agency of Transportation reports that icy conditions remain possible in the area. Motorists should drive with caution, travel at speeds appropriate for the conditions, leave plenty of stopping distance, and plan additional time to reach their destinations.

I-91 double fatal – an 83-year-old New Hampshire man and a 64-year-old Vermont woman died in a freeway crash in Windsor County yesterday.

At about 11:07 pm, state troopers responded to a single motor vehicle rollover on I-91 in Hartland. The vehicle had been traveling southbound before losing control and crashing in the median. The vehicle rolled over and came to rest in the northbound travel lane.

The driver, David Roberts, 83, of Canaan NH, was pronounced deceased by medical personnel on scene. Two female passengers were transported to DHMC for their injuries. Roberts’ wife Roberta, 56, is recovering, but passenger Juanita Young, 64, of Marlboro died at the hospital.
