Three people are dead after a four-vehicle crash Wednesday in Hooksett, New Hampshire.
Police say the crash happened around 1:20 p.m. at the intersection of Main Street and Hooksett Road. A Nissan Rogue, a Jeep Grand Cherokee, a GMC Savana and a Toyota Camry were involved.
After a preliminary investigation, authorities believe the Rogue was driving north on Hooksett Road when it sideswiped the Savana and the Camry, then continued on and rear-ended the Jeep before crashing into a large tree stump on the southbound shoulder of Main Street.
All three people who were in the Rogue were brought to local hospitals, where they were pronounced dead. The victims were identified as Linda Lecair, 68, of Farmington, New Hampshire, her sister April Miliner, 66, and Miliner's husband Gary Miliner, 70, both residents of Sanbornville, New Hampshire.
