EPPING, N.H. (AP) — Au­thor­i­ties say a re­tired Mas­sachusetts po­lice sergeant and his wife were killed in a New Hamp­shire high­way crash in­volv­ing a driver who was go­ing the wrong way. Po­lice said a pickup truck trav­el­ing east­bound on the west­bound side of Route 101 in Epping late Thurs­day crashed into a west­bound car. An­other west­bound driver un­able to see the crash ran into the pickup.

The car hit by the pickup was driven by 58-year-old John John­son, a sergeant who re­cently re­tired after nearly four decades with the po­lice de­part­ment in Townsend, Mas­sachusetts. He and his 57-year-old wife, Heidi John­son, died. They lived in New Ip­swich, New Hamp­shire. The pickup driver, 31-yearold Ryan Kit­tredge, of Derry, was hos­pi­tal­ized with se­ri­ous in­juries.

The driver who crashed into the pickup, 23-year-old An­drew Neeper, of Ray­mond, suf­fered non-life-threat­en­ing in­juries.
