An SUV crashed as it entered Interstate 93 in Manchester, New Hampshire, Wednesday, throwing its driver out of the vehicle as it rolled over, state police said.
The driver was seriously hurt, but a child inside the vehicle made it through without any injuries, the New Hampshire State Police said Thursday.
The crash took place Wednesday evening, shortly after troopers received a 4:10 p.m. call about an erratically driving Jeep Wrangler on Route 101 that was heading onto I-93 south, police said.
A trooper spotted the Jeep and began to follow it, but before he could stop the SUV, the driver cut across the highway and lost control, causing the rollover crash, according to police.
