A tractor-trailer collided with the passenger side of a car on Interstate 95 southbound, killing a Chelsea, Mass., woman Wednesday night, New Hampshire State Police said in a statement.
Courtney Hickson, 36, was pronounced dead at Portsmouth Regional Hospital, police said. The driver of the car, Daniel A. Powers, 36, of Boston, was also transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Police said Powers might have been speeding and impaired when he lost control of the Honda Civic as he attempted to change lanes in front of a tractor-trailer near Portsmouth.
All southbound lanes of the interstate were closed for approximately two and a half hours near exit 7 in Portsmouth following the crash.
The accident remains under investigation.
