NASHUA - A 44-year-old man from West Lebanon was killed early Sunday when police say he was struck by a vehicle after getting out of his car on the Everett Turnpike in Nashua.

State police said Bao Ming Chen was driving south on the turnpike just after 7.30 a.m. when he noticed a crash up ahead of him. As he began slowing to a stop, police said, his 2016 Acura MDX was struck from behind by a 2008 Ford Focus.

At that point, police said, Chen got out of his car and, a moment later, was struck by a 2004 Acura RSX. He was given emergency treatment at the scene and transported to a local hospital, where police said he was subsequently pronounced dead.

The driver of the car that struck him, George Roeschlaub of Hudson, was not injured, police said.

The driver of the Ford Focus that struck Chen's car, Samantha Cote, of Merrimack, sustained minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital for treatment, police added.

Members of State Police Troop B responded at about 7:45 a.m. to a report of a multi-vehicle pileup on the turnpike southbound at mile marker 4.2, which is between Exits 5 and 4.

Witnesses and motorists in the area at the time of the crashes described treacherous road conditions, caused by a combination of icy spots and sun glare from the wet pavement and newly fallen snow.

Nashua Fire Rescue Deputy Chief Kevin Kerrigan said later Sunday that an engine and ladder truck were dispatched to the incident, and upon arrival the crew of Engine 6 reported a serious accident involving seven cars.

He said three AMR ambulances were called to the scene to treat and transport the injured drivers. Police closed the turnpike's southbound lanes for a time, detouring traffic onto Exit 6.

Nashua police, along with AMR ambulance personnel, Nashua firefighters and state DOT officials assisted State Police at the scene.

The State Police Collision Analysis & Reconstruction (CAR) Unit continues to investigate the crash, police said.

They ask anyone who may have further information on the crash to contact Trooper Michael J. Pelletier at 223-8699 or michael.pelletier@dos.nh.gov.
