Two people are dead after their plane crashed alongside Interstate 93 in Hooksett.
NHPR’s Sam Evans-Brown was on the scene earlier today. He tells All Things Considered host Brady Carlson about what police have confirmed about the Doris and Herman Hassenger, the people killed in the crash, and about the plane's history.
The state commissioner of transportation warns that if the federal government moves ahead with a plan to cut $40 million of New Hampshire’s yearly highway funds—the completion of I-93 will be placed on hold, indefinitely. One portion that remains unfinished is exit 3 near Windham.
Many businesses there say the uncertainty of I-93’s future is hurting the local economy.
