Salisbury

Penacook man killed in crash was a father, hiker, musician

Monday, November 3, 2014

A Penacook man was killed in a car crash Saturday in Salisbury after he veered across Route 4 and struck a tree. Warren Leary IV, 24, was traveling eastbound at a “very, very high speed” in a 35-mph zone when his 2001 Chevy Impala hit a large tree hard enough that the engine was ripped from the car, said State Trooper Max King, who was the first to respond to …

Letter: Avoiding the facts

Sunday, October 26, 2014
