One driver killed, another facing felony charges in serious Greenville crash
GREENVILLE — A nearly head-on crash involving a pickup truck and a VW Jetta on Route 31 has claimed the life of 35-year-old Kyle Tetreault, a Wilton resident who was driving the Jetta at the time of the crash, which police said occurred shortly after 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Seriously injured and flown to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Massachusetts was Robert Tetreault, 38, also a Wilton resident, who was a passenger in the Jetta.
The driver of the pickup truck, Travis Worth, 37, of New Ipswich, was arrested following an on-scene investigation, and charged with one count each of negligent homicide and aggravated driving while intoxicated, state police said.
Worth was booked Wednesday night and held overnight in jail pending Thursday’s arraignment at Hillsborough County Superior Court South in Nashua.
Whether Worth was ordered held or released on bail wasn’t immediately clear. His case summary indicated the judge, after reviewing the allegations, found that probable cause exists.
The next court date listed in the summary is Feb. 10, which is for a dispositional conference.
According to investigators, it was determined that Worth’s pickup truck crossed the center line on Route 13 and collided with the Jetta.
Greenville police, along with local medical personnel and firefighters, arrived at the scene to find the wreckage of the two vehicles in the middle of Route 13 and determined that the driver of the Jetta, later identified as Kyle Tetreault, had suffered fatal injuries.
Police didn’t say if the Tetreaults are brothers or are otherwise related.
Greenville police requested the assistance of the state police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction (CAR) Unit to head up the investigation, police said.
While “all possible contributing factors” to the crash are being considered, police said, “it appears at this time that impairment is the primary cause of this collision.”
Anyone who may have further information about the crash is urged to contact Trooper Nate Goodwin at 545-4288 or Nathaniel.D.Goodwin@dos.nh.gov.
