MERRIMACK, NH – A man was injured in a rollover crash that also led to the injury of a good Samaritan on the F.E. Everett Turnpike in Merrimack late last night.
According to the New Hampshire State Police, the crash occurred on the northbound turnpike near mile marker 14.2 at 11:25 p.m., when the 24-year-old driver of a 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse, Merrimack resident James Gaudreau, lost control of his vehicle.
The Eclipse went off the left side of the highway, then struck a guardrail and overturned. It finally landed on top of the guardrail for the median.
Gaudreau, who was ejected during the collision, was taken to the hospital in Manchester to receive treatment for severe injuries.
Authorities believe Gaudreau may have been speeding at the time of the crash, though their investigation continues.
A bystander, the 20-year-old driver of a 2011 Toyota Sienna, Zachary Barnaby, of Pepperell, Mass., had attempted to pull over to help Gaudreau after witnessing the crash. The Sienna was then struck by the driver of a 2012 Mazda 5, 44-year-old Joseph Lazarto, of Chelmsford, Mass.
Barnaby sustained minor injuries in the crash and was taken to the hospital in Nashua for treatment.
Lazarto was not reported as injured.
