A box truck overturned early Tuesday morning on Interstate 89 in New London, prompting police to close a portion of the highway for several hours.

New Hampshire State Police responded to I-89 north near exit 12A for a report of a motor vehicle rollover at about 6:34 a.m. At the time, multiple other crashes were reported in the area, in part, due to the wet road conditions caused by a mix of rain and snow.

At the crash scene near exit 12A, police learned that a box truck for Bellavance Beverage Company had lost control and struck another vehicle before leaving the highway and overturning on its side in the median.

Police said the driver, Thomas Harwood, 29, of Derry, was the sole occupant of the box truck that struck the second vehicle, which was driven by Robert Boon, 65, of Hopkinton.

Neither driver was injured in the crash, police said.

The left travel lane of that section of I-89 was shut down while crews cleared the crash scene and cleaned up the load that had spilled out of the box truck.

The crash remains under investigation, although police said speed was a factor. Authorities ask anyone with information about the crash to contact Trooper Kyle Cotnoir 227-0089.
