Lynch said Whittemore was driving south on Route 4 on Burgess Hill and failed to yield at the intersection, pulling his truck in front of Hackett’s Jeep. The truck was pushed into the median and the Jeep rolled over several times.

Whittemore’s 1999 Chevrolet pickup truck and Hackett’s 2010 Jeep Wrangler were demolished.

The accident remains under investigation, Lynch said.

Assisting him at the scene were Wilton, Jay and East Dixfield fire departments, and Jay Police Department.
