Fatal Accident in Windham Takes Life of Derry Man
by Andrea Ganley-Dannewitz A fatal car wreck that occurred at the Salem/Windham town
line last Tuesday claimed the life of a Derry father. Stephane St. Pierre, 41, was traveling south on Route 28 in
his white Honda Accord with his five-year-old daughter when he suddenly crossed over two lanes of traffic and struck a Ford F-150 pick-up truck head on. The pickup truck operated by Richard Jones, 47, of Salem had been traveling northbound on Route 28 when the Honda suddenly hit him head on. Jones, St. Pierre, and the little girl all had to be extricated from the vehicles. The cause of the crash is not yet known; however, police in
Windham say that alcohol, drugs, and speed were not factors contributing to the crash. The wreck happened around 7:45 p.m. on Tuesday, August
17. Both the Salem and Windham Fire Departments responded to the scene, as the accident was originally thought to have been in Salem. Salem Assistant Fire Chief Paul Parisi described the
accident as extremely serious and the extrication of the patients as extremely difficult, saying that three sets of hydraulic tools from both departments had to be used. It took over 20 minutes to extricate the victims from the vehicles. Stephane St. Pierre was taken to Holy Family Hospital in Methuen, MA, where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.
Pierre’s five-year-old daughter was taken to Parkland Medical Center and then transferred to Boston Children’s Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Richard Jones was also taken to Parkland Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. The Windham Police Accident Reconstruction Team and the Derry Police Transportation Accident Reconstruction Team investigated the crash while the road remained closed for several hours. Police are investigating the possibility of a mechanical failure in the Honda as a possible factor in the crash.
Consumers Should Beware Door-to-Door Magazine Sales
by Doug Robinson New Hampshire’s Attorney General, Michael A. Delaney,
warned that consumers should be aware of a door-to-door magazine subscription sales effort currently operating in the state. Consumers are warned that sales people coming to their homes may be misrepresenting themselves as neighbors and individuals working to earn money to go to college, when many of these individuals, who are employed by American Circulation Enterprises, have come from out of state and are not college students. Consumers are also warned that American Circulation Enterprises charges subscription fees far in excess of the actual cost of the subscription, he said. Under New Hampshire’s Consumer Protection Act, N.H. RSA 358-A, it is unlawful for any person to use any unfair or deceptive act or practice in the conduct of any trade or commerce within
this state. A deceptive act or practice can include using deceptive representations or designations of geographic origin in connection with goods or services. New Hampshire Law N.H. RSA 361-B:2, also provides consumers the right to cancel any home solicitation sales transaction within three business days after the date of the transaction. Anyone who feels they have been the victims of an unfair or
deceptive act in connection with these door-to-door magazine sales should contact their local police department, or call the Consumer Protection Bureau at 271-3641 or 1-888-468-4454. For more information on consumer fraud, you can also visit the Bureau’s Website at www.doj.nh.gov/consumer

Exit 3 Projects- continued from front page
A required supplemental environmental impact statement is expected to be completed in late September or early October. Stamnos said this would be the final approval needed to continue with reconstruction work at Exits 1 and 5. Levine told town officials that a detention basin for run-off water, located near Exit 3, is about 85 percent finished at this point and it is expected to be fully completed in early September. Also, according to Levine, Route 111, near Exit 3, is due to be repaved in the near future. “This area of Route 111 will be in good shape for the coming winter,” he said. By this coming Thanksgiving, Levine expects that the northbound portion of Route 93 will be paved up to the Weigh Station. There will be some lane shifts required during this phase of construction, and some work will be done during nighttime hours throughout the fall.
As for construction along Route 111A, Levine said that any blasting to be done “will be hit or miss for the rest of the year.” Selectmen’s Chairman Charles McMahon asked Stamnos if the
issues of water run-off affecting Canobie Lake and Cobbetts Pond is a thing of the past. “I believe it is,” Stamnos answered. McMahon also asked about the recurring problem of graffiti on
state-owned bridges that cross the various highways in Windham. “It’s a real mess,” McMahon commented. Stamnos said he would look into a solution to the issue.
