Swanzey teen dies in Alstead rollover

ALSTEAD – A Swanzey teen was killed in a crash in the early morning hours Tuesday, and another local teen was injured.

Jacob Nash, 17, of Swanzey, was found dead at the scene when state police responded to a report of a single motor vehicle rollover on the Gilsum Mine Road at 2:47 a.m.

Passenger Hayden Wilmott, 18, of Alstead, was treated at the scene for non-life-threatening injuries.

The teens had not been wearing seat belts when Nash failed to negotiate a right curve and went off the left side of the road and struck a large rock, state police said.

Preliminary investigation results indicate Nash was driving the southbound 1995 Subaru Impreza at a high rate of speed.

The vehicle rolled over multiple times, then came to a rest in the southbound travel lane.
