Three suffer life-threatening injuries after wrong-way crash on Nashua turnpike

Three people were being treated for life-threatening injuries after a driver crashed head-on into a car while driving the wrong way on the F. E. Everett Turnpike in Nashua, N.H. early Sunday morning, according to New Hampshire State Police.

The alleged wrong-way driver, Juan Osorio Marin, 23, of Hudson, N.H., was semi-conscious when Nashua fire officials extricated him from his car just after 2:45 a.m., New Hampshire State Police said in a statement. He was taken to Lahey Clinic in Burlington, Mass.

Both the driver and passenger inside the black 2002 Honda Accord that Osorio Marin allegedly hit were also extricated from their car, State Police said.


They were flown by two medical helicopters to receive treatment for life-threatening injuries, according to State Police. One victim was taken to Tufts Medical Center in Boston and the other was taken to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester.

Neither victim inside the Honda Accord was identified.

State Police declined to comment about any charges related to the crash.

Both the Honda Accord and Osorio Marin’s car, a silver 2017 Toyota Camry, sustained significant damage and were towed from the scene of the crash, according to State Police.

The northbound side of the F.E. Everett Turnpike was restricted to one lane of travel for about two hours after the crash, State Police said. All lanes were shut down for about 40 minutes when medical helicopters landed at the scene.

State Police are investigating the cause of the crash and urge anyone with information to call Trooper Daniel Roger at (603)223-4381.
