Motorist suffers serious injuries in crash

ACWORTH, N.H. (AP) — A motorist has suffered serious injuries after he lost control of his pick-up truck and it rolled down an embankment in Acworth.

State police say 65-year-old Michael Blake of Acworth became trapped in his vehicle after the accident around 8:20 a.m. Tuesday. Rescue teams from area fire departments removed him and he was flown to a hospital.

Blake's truck went down an embankment after he struck a guardrail and the vehicle's cab detached from its frame. Authorities say defective equipment was a contributing factor in the crash.
