Man who died in Sanbornton crash was passenger

SANBORNTON – A 24-year-old man killed Tuesday night in a single-car rollover crash on Burleigh Hill Road was the passenger in the crash.
The man's mother identified him to The Daily Sun on Thursday as Jared Grenier, and confirmed he had died. Grenier's name came not from police directly, but from the Sanbornton Police Facebook page, where commenters on the police press release posted the name. In yesterday's story, the Daily Sun inadvertently named Grenier the driver.
The driver, who remains unidentified, was taken to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon where he was reported on Tuesday to be in critical condition.
Police said a preliminary investigation indicates that speed and alcohol could be factors in the crash and that the Belknap County Attorney's office was investigating the case.
