CHICHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Police say a driver was killed in a head-on collision with a commercial truck in a New Hampshire town.

Police say the 36-year-old man, who has not been identified, was driving a black Acura when it hit another vehicle from behind before losing control and colliding head-on with a truck on Wednesday.

The 57-year-old man driving the truck suffered minor injuries and the other driver, a 33-year-old woman, refused medical aid.

The three-vehicle crash also spilled 100 gallons of diesel fuel onto Route 4 in Chichester, which was partially closed down during the evening commute for several hours.

WMUR-TV reports the accident happened in the same area where a mother and son were killed in a 2011 crash.

The fatal crash remains under investigation.
