A 47-year-old New Hampshire man was killed in a three-vehicle crash early this morning in North Andover.
Raymond Leclerc of Manchester was killed in the crash, the Essex district attorney's office said. The crash happened at about 5:23 a.m. on Route 114/Route 125 in front of the Merrimack College hockey rink, said North Andover Police Sergeant Gene Salois. The victim was in one of two cars that were involved in the accident, along with a box truck.
The road has been closed so police can investigate, Salois said.
A white Pontiac Vibe with right rear damage, a bronze Acura RSX with front-end damage, and a truck with a burned-out cab were still at the accident scene this morning.
A number of local fire and police vehicles were also at the scene, along with the van from the state medical examiner's office, and state highway department trucks.
Around the cars, wreckage was strewn all over the road, including auto parts, skis, a duffel bag full of clothes, a hardhat, and orange safety gear.
