BARNSTEAD — A 20-year-old local man died Wednesday night in a single-car accident on South Barnstead Road (Rte. 126) near Hannah Nutter Road.
The man, who is not being identified until members of his extended family can be notified, was the only person in the car.
Police said the car appears to have left the road and stuck a utility pole causing major damage to the driver's side of the car.
He was extricated by Barnstead Fire Rescue and taken to Concord Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Police continue to investigate and believe speed and alcohol were factors.
Rte. 126 remained closed to all non-emergency traffic through early yesterday while power crews replaced the transformer and pole.
