Metal Beam Falls Off Trailer, Causing Route 9 Crash

Three vehicles crashed on Route 9 recently after a 2,000-pound metal support beam fell off a load of scrap metal being hauled by a tractor trailer, according to WMUR.

The semi hauling the support beam and other pieces of scrap metal was traveling east on Route 9 when the beam fell off the truck and landed in the roadway. As it fell, the beam hit an SUV driven by a Moultonborough woman who was also traveling east. The driver was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries, but she is expected to make a full recovery. A pickup truck that crashed with the SUV and a car that hit other debris in the roadway were also involved in the New Hampshire auto accident, and the drivers of both were treated for non-life-threatening injuries at the scene.

The truck driver did not stop at the scene because he did not realize the beam had fallen off the truck. He learned about the lost beam when he delivered the load of scrap metal and the company found that a piece, which matched the description of the one-ton beam involved in the accident, was missing.

A truck load that is not properly secured or is fastened with defective equipment may come loose and cause injury.
