May 31—GREENLAND — A collision involving a tractor-trailer and a sedan that may have been stopped along I-95 late Monday night left the driver of the car dead at the scene.

According to New Hampshire State Police, the accident happened about 11:30 p.m. near mile marker 11 on the north lanes of the interstate. The tractor-trailer was driven by Milton Junior Anziani-Reyes, 25, of Leominster, Mass., who was uninjured. The driver of the car, its sole occupant, died at the scene; their identity is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

"A preliminary investigation indicates that the sedan was possibly parked in the right travel lane of the highway with its lights on when it was struck by the tractor-trailer," state police said in a statement.

The state Department of Transportation assisted in closing the right two lanes of I-95 north in Greenland, which remained closed for several hours while the Collision Analysis Reconstruction Unit (CAR) investigated the scene, state police said.

All aspects of this crash remain under investigation by the CAR Unit and no charges have been filed at this time, state police said. Neither speed nor alcohol are suspected as contributing factors in this collision.

Anyone who may have witnessed the crash can contact the investigating trooper, Trooper Nathan Goodwin, by emailing Nathaniel.D.Goodwin@dos.nh.gov.
