NASHUA -- Police are looking for a car they say caused a multi-vehicle crash Thursday night on the Everett Turnpike that sent two people to the hospital.
According to a press release from the New Hampshire State Police , the accident happened around 9:20 p.m. in the area of Exit 6.
Witness said a white pickup truck - which police said was possibly a Ford F-150 with Massachusetts plates - was headed northbound when it lost control near the exit. Police said the truck then clipped another pickup, and that truck struck an SUV.
"The white pickup truck then struck the median jersey barrier, causing the truck's bedcap and its contents to become dislodged from the truck," a press release stated. "The truck's bedcap and its contents then crossed over the median, striking two vehicles traveling southbound, before coming to rest in the roadway."
Police said the truck that caused the accident left the scene and continued heading north. It was carrying a load of compressed wood bricks and patio bricks, and these "were strewn about both sides of the roadway."
Police said that the truck "should have fresh damage to the front end and is missing a headlamp and directional lamp assembly." They added that a caller provided information on "a possible suspect vehicle and matching Massachusetts registration plate. The New Hampshire State Police is currently following up on that information."
Police said two people were send to the hospital with unknown injuries.
The Nashua Police and Fire Departments and the Department of Transportation assisted State Police Troop B out of Bedford at the scene.
Anyone who may have witnessed the accident or who may have further information should contact Trooper Joshua Quigley at 603-223-8307.
