HOLDERNESS — State police say an Ashland man was killed after rolling over his vehicle in snowy conditions on Interstate 93 Thursday morning.

A preliminary investigation indicates a 2007 Ford F-150 driven by John Hughes, 77, was traveling south during just after 9 a.m.

State police said Hughes was attempting to slow down for a vehicle in front of his truck that was also slowing down when he lost control; his vehicle went into the median between the north and southbound lanes, where it rolled over.   

Hughes was not wearing a seatbelt, state police said. He was transported to Speare Memorial Hospital in Plymouth, where he later died.

A passenger, identified by police as Kendall Hughes, 49, also of Ashland, was taken to Speare Memorial Hospital with minor injuries. He was treated and released.

The crash remains under investigation. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Trooper Amanda Johnson of Troop F at 846-3333.
