Two people were killed including a man from North Hampton in a crash on Route 125 in Lee on Friday afternoon closing the road for several hours.

Lee police said a northbound 2015 Nissan Sentra driven by Allan Hardy, 36, of North Hampton drifted into the southbound lanes and struck a 2021 Kia driven by Jose Olivares, 42, of Manchester around 2:45 p.m. near the Epping border. Justin Reno, 24, of Manchester, the driver of a 2006 Jeep Liberty behind Olivares that struck Hardy's vehicle, was not hurt, according to police.

One of the occupants was ejected onto the roadway, according to police.

Hardy died at Portsmouth Regional Hospital while Oliveres was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger in Oliveres vehicle, Mirelis Murel, 20, of Nashua, was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

A GoFundMe page was created by Oliveres son Axel Olivares to help with funeral expenses. The page said he also has another son.
