SEABROOK, N.H. — A teenager was killed and two others were injured Friday when their pickup truck collided with a tractor trailer on Interstate 95, crossed a grass median and flipped over before stopping.

New Hampshire State Police said the vehicle driven by 18-year-old Brandon Petit, of Raymond, N.H., cut in front of a tractor trailer while trying to get off at Exit 1 on Friday evening. The pickup and the truck driven by 43-year-old Neil Swain, of Canaan, Maine, collided, and the pickup was sent across the median.

Petit was transported to Anna Jacques Hospital in Newburyport, Mass., with non-life threatening injuries. Swain was not injured.
