Driver flees after running truck off I-93 in Manchester
Police are looking for a driver who drove a pickup truck off Interstate 93 south in Manchester and then took off, leaving state troopers with a trail of footprints that disappeared in the highway's high speed lane.
State police said the crash happened just before 7 p.m. Saturday night. The truck crashed through the center median guard rail and ran off the road, ending up in a small creek about 75 feet off the highway.
When state police arrived, they found the truck, but there was no driver with it. A single set of footprints led away from the scene. Troopers followed tracks, but they disappeared in the breakdown lane adjacent to the median strip.
The accident forced traffic to use just one lane of the highway while the guardrail was replaced. Police are seeking the person who was driving the 2004 gray Chevrolet Colorado pickup with Massachusetts plates. Anyone who has information about the crash is asked to call State Police in Bedford at 603-223-4381
