LONDONDERRY — A Florida man was seriously injured Monday evening when he was thrown from his SUV, after it rolled over several times on Interstate 93, according to New Hampshire State Police. 

Police say 60-year-old Phillip William Todisco of Pensacola, Florida, was traveling northbound around 7:33 p.m. at a high rate of speed on I-93 near the Exit 4 construction zone when his 2019 red Kia Sorento struck the rear of a black 2017 Toyota Corolla sedan driven by 21-year-old Christopher Lampman of Manchester. 

According to police, the SUV's direction veered left, towards an assortment of large orange construction barriers. Then, police say, the Kia traveled through the barriers and entered a yaw-type skid. 

According to police, the SUV then struck concrete Jersey barriers, knocking them back about 6 feet. This caused the SUV to rollover several times, according to police. 

Police say Todisco was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the SUV.  According to police, Todisco was found lying in the roadway with significant injuries to his head and upper body. 

Todisco was treated by rescue personnel and taken to the Elliot Hospital, in Manchester, according to police. 

Lampman did not receive any injuries, according to police. 

The highway was shut down for 20 minutes while those involved in the accident were evaluated and witnesses were interviewed, according to police. 

The incident is still under investigation. Anyone with information about the crash should contact Trooper Nick Quintiliani or Trooper Robert Bifsha at 603-223-4381.
