One person was killed Tuesday and another seriously injured in a single-car crash on Route 106 in Concord.

The two adults were ejected from a 2001 black Chevrolet Corvette that was traveling south from Loudon into the Capital City, Concord Deputy Police Chief John Thomas said. The Corvette struck a guardrail and came to rest in a grassy area off the side of the state road.

“We don’t know what caused the accident at this point, but it’s likely speed was a factor,” Thomas said.

Thomas said experts in accident reconstruction were on scene Tuesday trying to piece together what happened. It’s too early in the investigation to know if the driver and sole passenger were wearing seatbelts, he said.

Thomas declined to identify the crash victims Tuesday because police were still working to notify next of kin of the deceased.

The person who suffered serious injuries was taken by ambulance to Concord Hospital.

The crash was reported at approximately 11:40 a.m. just south of the Loudon town line. When first responders arrived on scene, they found the vehicle off the road and car parts scattered about the area.

A section of Route 106, also known as Sheep Davis Road, was shut down for several hours Tuesday as police processed the scene. Traffic was rerouted on Autumn Drive, near Makris Lobster & Steak House, to Josiah Bartlett and back onto Route 106 to bypass the crash scene.

Initially, New Hampshire State Police responded to the call to assist Concord with shutting down the area and rerouting traffic.

Authorities are asking anyone who witnessed the crash to contact the Concord Police Department at 603-225-8600 or the Concord Regional Crimeline at 603-226-3100.
