The New Hampshire Attorney General’s office said Wednesday that it is investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a 45-year-old woman who was shot by state troopers in a residential area of the state’s largest city Monday night.

Officials said that Wendy Lawrence, of Canterbury, New Hampshire, was shot four times and died of a gunshot wound to the chest in Manchester. The shooting was the conclusion of a police chase that began earlier Monday evening when Lawrence was stopped by a state trooper for driving erratically on Interstate 89.

According to the official release, Lawrence gave the officer a non-driver’s license ID and claimed she had a valid license. But when the officer returned to his car to radio for a record check, Lawrence pulled back onto the highway and drove away.

Boston crash leaves truck cab hanging off highway

BOSTON — A major elevated highway just north of downtown Boston was temporarily closed after a beer delivery truck struck a guardrail, leaving the truck cab hanging off the road.

The Friday afternoon accident, which also involved a second smaller truck, snarled traffic for hours, and delayed commuter trains whose tracks run below the highway.

Massachusetts State Police said the crash on Interstate 93 northbound near Exit 28 was reported after 2 p.m., closing two lanes of the highway for almost two hours. The Leverett Connector highway ramp below also was closed until the dangling cab was removed at about 4:40 p.m.

Boston fire officials said the driver and a passenger got out of the cab and weren’t hurt. The driver of the smaller truck was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

State police are investigating.
