The Spaulding Turnpike will close early Tuesday afternoon to allow for further investigation of Monday afternoon's fatal crash.

The highway will be closed in both directions between Exit 6 (Routes 9 and 108) in Dover and Exit 7 (Route 125) in Rochester between noon and 2 p.m.

New Hampshire State Police will complete their investigation of the crash that claimed the life of the driver of a northbound 2022 Acura when it was hit by a tractor-trailer that jumped the guardrail from the southbound lanes.

Drivers will be diverted off at the exits to use Routes 4 and 108 to rejoin the Spaulding Turnpike.

State Police have not disclosed the identity of the driver who died in the crash.
