Two Brothers Died in a New Hampshire Accident Today

Bow is a picturesque town in New Hampshire located south of Concord. It boasts an active civic scene and boasts several notable institutions such as its agriculture industry, sawmill and gristmill, as well as being an important center for business and tourism.

On Friday morning, tragedy struck Bow when two brothers tragically died in a car crash. Their father was also injured when his vehicle collided with an abandoned tractor-trailer on Interstate 89 near Bow.

State police reported the accident occurred at 8:37 a.m. A 2017 Ford Expedition driven by Thomas Ouellette, 44, of Bow, was traveling south on Interstate 89 near mile marker 1.2 when for some unknown reason it drifted into the breakdown lane and struck a disabled tractor-trailer truck parked in its own lane – registered to Laroche Carrier LLC out of Fort Wayne, Ind., with 53 feet of enclosed box inside.

In the accident, the driver of the rig became air-bag-empowered and the trailer sustained extensive damage. As a result, they had to be towed away from the scene.

On Saturday afternoon at Bow High School, family and friends of the victims joined for a ceremony to remember two brothers who tragically perished in an I-89 accident last week. Hundreds of people attended the event held on the school’s athletic field.

Students and parents gathered on the field in small groups, conversing quietly. Some wore their school’s home jerseys while placing American flags around the field. Additionally, members of the Bow football team were honored at this ceremony along with coach Chris Robbins; they got to talk about their teammates’ memories alongside Chris Robbins.

Law enforcement agencies throughout the area came together to support the surviving family, including Bow Police Chief Michael Dimattia, Walpole police officers, New Hampshire State Troopers and the New Hampshire Sheriff’s Department. Officers donated a vehicle to the Ouellette family as well as providing financial aid through local schools to victims’ families.

A GoFundMe fundraiser has been set up for the Ouellette family, called Love for the Ouellette Family, that has so far raised more than $20,000 and continues to grow.

The incident is still under investigation. The State Police Collision Analysis Reconstruction (CAR) Unit will continue to look into the cause of the accident, in collaboration with local law enforcement.
