Wrong Way Driver Causes Head On Crash

Shortly after 2:30 am on Sunday,  Troopers from State Police Troop B Barracks and members of the Nashua Fire Department were dispatched to a reported head on collision with a wrong way driver north on the F. E. Everett Turnpike just north of the Massachusetts State line in Nashua, NH.

Upon the arrival of State Police personnel they discovered three occupants entrapped within the confines of two separate vehicles. Juan Osorio Martin 23, of Hudson NH was the operator of the vehicle traveling the wrong way.

Osorio Marin was semi-conscious and appeared to be suffering from life threatening injuries.  Osorio was extricated from the vehicle by the Nashua Fire and Rescue and then transported to Lahey Clinic in Burlington, MA. His vehicle, identified as a silver 2017 Toyota Camry, sustained significant damage and was towed from the scene.

The operator and passenger of the vehicle struck by the wrong way driver were also extricated from their vehicle by Nashua Fire and Rescue, they immediately called for a medical helicopter to respond to the scene to assist. Both the driver and passenger were flown by two separate DHART Medical Helicopters to Tufts Medical Center in Boston and U-MASS Memorial Medical Center in Worcester for life threatening injuries. Their vehicle, identified as a black 2002 Honda Accord, sustained significant damage and was towed from the scene.

The north bound side of the F.E. Everett Turnpike was restricted to one lane of travel for approximately two hours and completely shut down for approximately 40 minutes while medical helicopters landed at the scene. Traffic was able to bypass the accident scene by diverting off of exit 1 and reconnecting with the F.E. Everett Turnpike north of the scene.

This case remains under investigation and anyone with any information about this incident is asked to call Trooper D. Roger at (603)223-4381
