---- — A Methuen man was fatally injured when his car veered off Interstate 95 in Portsmouth, N.H., late last night.
The victim identified as William Lasonde, 63.
Several Methuen city councilors said Lasonde worked for Methuen's IT department.
New Hampshire state police said Lasonde was driving north on I-95 shortly before 10 p.m. when his 2006 Chevrolet HHR went off the right side of the highway, hit a guardrail and rolled over several times before landing in the median strip between the roadway and the Exit 5 off ramp.
Lasonde was ejected from the vehicle. He was taken to Portsmouth Regional Hospital, where he later died of his injuries.
A state police press release did not indicate whether he had been wearing a seatbelt.
Part of the right lane of the highway was closed for about two hours after the crash. The accident remains under investigation by Trooper Scott Garton. Anyone with information about the accident is asked to contact him at State Police Troop A at (603) 223-8490.
