New Hampshire crash that killed 3 went unnoticed for 18 hours, police say

Another passenger, a 19-year-old Manchester man, was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries as a result of the crash.

HAMPTON FALLS, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire police say a crash that killed three people and seriously injured another may have gone unnoticed for nearly 18 hours.

The car, off a road and hidden by dense vegetation, was spotted by someone walking along Route 88 in Hampton Falls at 11 a.m. Sunday. But police believe the crash may have happened as early as 6:30 p.m. the previous night. The driver, 21-year-old Jacob Raymond, of Exeter, was killed, along with two passengers: 18-year-old Sarah Frost, of Exeter, and 22-year-old Stephen Hansen, of Seabrook.

A third passenger, 19-year-old Daniel Petruzzelli, of Manchester, is hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.


Police say the car went off the road going around a curve, and that excessive speed appears to be a factor.
