NASHUA — A West Lebanon man was killed in a seven-vehicle accident on the F.E. Everett Turnpike on Sunday, authorities said.

State Police said Bao Ming Chen, 44, was coming to a stop due to a "traffic incident" ahead of him when he was rear-ended by a car. Chen got of out of his vehicle and was struck by a third vehicle, police said.

The accident was reported around 7:45 a.m., just south of Exit 5, authorities said.

"It was very difficult to see with the sun glare," said Kevin Kerrigan, deputy chief with Nashua Fire and Rescue.

The highway’s southbound lanes were shut down for at least an hour, he said.

Chen was coming to a stop when his 2016 red Acura MDX was rear-ended by a white 2008 Ford Focus driven by Samantha Cote, 23, of Merrimack, police said.

Chen got out of his vehicle and was struck by a red 2004 Acura RSX, driven by George Roeschlaub of Hudson.

Chen was pronounced dead at an area hospital.

Cote was treated at an area hospital for minor injuries. Roeschlaub wasn’t hurt, police said.

Anyone with information about the crash can contact Trooper First Class Michael J. Pelletier at 223-8699 or email him at
