A 24-year-old from Massachusetts was killed and several others were hurt on Tuesday during a crash in New Hampshire near the Vermont state line, according to authorities.
The crash happened on Route 119 in Hinsdale just before 6 p.m.
New Hampshire State Police said that Hinsdale police was already in the area, looking into something unrelated, when an officer saw a Volkswagen Jetta driving fast and erratically westbound. The Jetta then reversed directions, and crossed over into the westbound lane, hitting a Jeep head-on, troopers said.
Two 21-year-olds who were in the Jetta were taken to the hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries, troopers said, adding that a 24-year-old passenger named Richard Miner of Greenfield, Massachusetts, was ejected and pronounced dead on scene.
