CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A crash involving a dump truck, box truck and a pickup truck hauling a trailer shut down traffic for over an hour Friday on northbound Interstate 93 in Concord, New Hampshire State Police said.

Two people were taken to a hospital for minor injuries.

Police said northbound traffic was stopped due to traffic congestion from tree-clearing operations by the Department of Transportation near Exit 17. At about 11:45 a.m., a dump truck struck the rear the pickup, which was towing a U-Haul trailer. The pickup then struck the rear of a Fed Ex box truck.

The driver of the dump truck, Scott Marcotte, 27, of Tilton, was cited on a charge of following too closely. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer. A message was left at a possible phone number.
