A series of snow squalls hit parts of the North Country early Thursday night, causing a series of accidents including one that temporarily closed northbound Interstate 93 in Franconia.
The Franconia crash happened just after 6 p.m. and involved a tractor trailer. It happened just north of the Franconia Notch. The impact broke the tractor away from its cargo-carrying trailer.
The driver was thrown from the cab and taken to Littleton Regional Hospital.
