Man critically hurt in I-95 accident

SEABROOK — A Massachusetts man was listed in critical condition at a Boston hospital yesterday morning after being airlifted there Monday following a two-car crash on Interstate 95 north in Seabrook.

According to Sgt. Gary Wood of the New Hampshire State Police, Edward King, 47, of Everett, sustained serious injury when his 1999 Nissan Maxima hit a box delivery truck that was disabled and parked in the breakdown lane near exit 1 in Seabrook at 3:17 p.m.

Troopers from Troop A responded. It’s still unclear why King’s Maxima veered into the breakdown lane, Wood said.

Seabrook Fire Department also responded to the scene with two fire engines and an ambulance, according to Seabrook firefighter and EMT Robert Baker. King was cut out of the vehicle and taken to Exeter Hospital in Exeter, N.H., Baker said. He was later airlifted by the Dartmouth Air Rescue Team to Boston Medical Center for treatment.

“He was pretty banged up, although he was conscious and alert at the scene,” Baker said yesterday.

Wood said the two occupants in the 10-wheel box truck/delivery van did not reported injuries.

Baker said the accident took place in the northbound section of I-95 between the exit ramp of New Hampshire visitors’ center and the exit 1 off-ramp.
