Brothers Nicholas and Gavin Ouellette were killed in a New Hampshire car crash last week, while their father, who was driving at the time, sustained “serious” injuries.
On Friday at around 8:30 a.m. local time, New Hampshire State Police responded to a vehicle crash on Interstate 89 in the town of Bow, according to a media release.
Authorities determined that Thomas Ouellette, 44, was traveling in the right hand lane “when for an unknown reason,” the vehicle drifted into the breakdown lane before colliding with a disabled tractor-trailer. “As a result of this collision two juveniles that were passengers in Ouellette’s vehicle sustained fatal injuries,” police said.
Meanwhile Ouellette was transported to a local hospital with “serious but non-life threatening injuries.”
Bow School Superintendent Dean Cascadden went on to identify the boys as Nicholas, an 11th grader who played on the school’s football team, and Gavin, a student in the first grade, according to NBC10 Boston.
The crash remains under investigation.
