[[ 7:30 pm UPDATE: I checked WMUR 6 pm news and just now their Website. No new news as yet. ]]
I have heard, unofficially, that DWI was involved. Appears that driver that died,
the one who was on the wrong side of the road, overtaking multiple cars,
was drunk. Appears he hit two teenagers. The two teenagers are at Dartmouth Hitchcock
Medical Center in Hanover. They were taken by helicopter.
This is local, Alton hearsay.

Yes, all accidents in N.H. are ‘close to home‘ and ones in Alton, especially when they are serious, are even more so.
We were on Route 11, in Alton, yesterday. I think I know the exact stretch of road that was probably the scene. Yes, I understand how people get frustrated on this road. But this …
Then, whenever, I read about a local accident, Josh Spaulding’s inexcusable brag comes to mind — my mind wired to make such connections.
Still amazes me that NOT a single educator or local official from ANY of the Towns that Spaulding covers had the decency to chastise Spaulding.
Frank Chilinski, the President & Publisher of ‘The Baysider’, if he had an iota of common human decency, social responsibility or civic conscious WOULD have fired him — on the spot. But he obviously is only in this for the filthy lucre — screw the community. Let them eat cake.
Yes, somebody more ‘adult’ would have AT LEAST have apologized in public even if they didn’t have the gumption to resign.
But, ‘OH NO’, none of this happened.
Local HOT SHOTS like Spaulding can speed with impunity — criminal speeding that.
But I am reminded of this column, with an accompanying shudder, every time I hear of a serious accident in my neighbourhood.
