N.H. State Police: Crash investigation to be lengthy


HOOKSETT, N.H. — New Hampshire State Police said they anticipate a lengthy investigation in determining the cause of the small-plane crash that killed an elderly Rhode Island couple. The single-engine Beechcraft hit a light pole alongside the northbound lanes of Interstate 93 in Hooksett on Thursday, sending it crashing onto the highway and partially into the woods next to the road. Herman and Doris Hassinger, who were both 83 and from Block Island, were killed. Lieutenant Chris Wagner said police were still working Friday with the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board on the crash. (AP)
