BOW — A tractor-trailer carrying a load of milk went over a guardrail and rolled 30 to 40 feet down an embankment when its driver lost control of the truck as he exited Interstate 89 South onto I-93 North late Monday night.

State police said Christopher Welch, 47, of Shoreham, Vt., was driving the 2017 Peterbilt registered to G.K. Bisson Trucking of Barre, Vt., when he lost control while taking the on-ramp about 11:55 p.m.

Welch was extricated from the truck by Bow emergency workers, police said, and was taken to Concord Hospital for evaluation.

The ramp remained closed into Tuesday morning while milk and fuel were cleaned up and the truck was removed, police said. The work was supervised by the state Department of Environmental Services and Department of Transportation.

The crash remains under investigation. Police ask anyone with information to contact Trooper Anthony Pratt at 223-4381.
