MILFORD — Police have identified the victim in a two-car accident on Route 101 on Wednesday morning as Eric M. Lecuyer, 29, of Merrimack.

According to Capt. Chris Nervik of the Milford Police Department, on Wednesday around 10 am, Lecuyer’s 2006 Toyota Highlander, headed west on the Route 101 bypass, crossed over into the eastbound lane into the path of a 2001 Chevy pick-up driven by Richard Benotti, 78, of Temple.

The pick-up hit the passenger side of the Highlander and both vehicles went off the road on the eastbound side of the highway. Benotti was not injured in the accident, but Lecuyer was pronounced dead at the scene.

Drugs or alcohol are not believed to be a factor in the crash, said Nervik.

The accident is still under investigation. Anyone with information about the accident is asked to call Milford Police at (603)249-0630.
