1 dead after car crashes into N.H. tollbooth, catches fire

Troopers said the incident happened around 1:55 a.m. at the Hooksett Toll Plaza.

A car struck a manned toll booth in New Hampshire and caught fire early Friday in what proved to be a fatal crash, N.H. state police troopers said in a Facebook post later Friday morning.

Police said a 2017 Subaru Forester crashed into a toll booth at the Hooksett Toll Plaza while driving on on Route 93 southbound around 1:55 a.m. Troopers and the New Hampshire State Fire Marshal’s Office tended to the scene. 

Officers worked to identify the driver, who they said was the only person in the Subaru.

Though the toll attendant who had been working the tollbooth during the incident was not reported injured, police said he was taken to a nearby hospital as a precaution.
