BARNET — A commercial motor vehicle hauling two trailers in tandem crashed early this morning.

The crash took place on Interstate 91 north at around 2:05 a.m.

Police say the driver, Thomas Merrill, 57 of Lisbon, New Hampshire, lost control of the vehicle after crossing an ice-covered bridge.

The second trailer rolled onto its passenger side but remained connected to the first trailer.

The passing lane of the Interstate remained closed while the crash investigation was ongoing.

The Interstate was closed briefly while the scene was cleaned up.

“Road conditions played a major contributing circumstance in the crash but speed was not a factor,” a statement issued by Trooper Tylor Rancourt reads.
