A collision involving a commercial truck on I-89 in Grantham just after 11:00 am yesterday had the road closed for several hours. Police say a white Hino Flatbed transporting lumber and scaffoldings crashed into the guard rail on I-89 causing obstruction of travel in both lanes.
The driver 28-year-old Eric Dechellis of Manchester was transported to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
An investigation showed that Dechellis fell asleep while driving to Burlington VT for New England Scaffolding Services in Bow NH. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.
