Rash of truck crashes prompt closure of part of I-93 in New Hampshire

FRANCONIA NOTCH, N.H. (WHDH) — A stretch of Interstate 93 in New Hampshire has reopened to traffic Monday after hazardous road conditions caused several trucks to crash.

State police closed the highway in both directions in Franconia Notch, according to transportation officials.

Emergency crews responded to reports of three tractor-trailer rollovers. High winds caused dangerous travel in the area.

The road has since reopened but tractor-trailers are still being diverted away due to the high winds.
