On May 17th 2021 at approximately 1:30am, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office along with Baldwin Fire Department responded to the area of Pequawket Trail (Rte 113) and Anderson Road for a commercial vehicle crash.

The initial investigation revealed that Jared Charles, 28 years old, of Manchester, New Hampshire was driving a 2021 Freightliner tractor trailer when he left the roadway. The truck struck a utility pole, snapping it in half and causing the truck to jackknife. Mr. Charles was uninjured in the crash. The vehicle was leased by The Granite Group of Manchester, New Hampshire and was loaded with bathroom furnishings.

Pequawket Trail was closed for a brief time to allow tow crews to retrieve the vehicle and Central Maine Power to repair the damage and restore services to the area.

Driver inattention appears to be a factor in the crash. One crash scene photo is attached
