A commercial driver in Lebanon literally flipped his lid on Tuesday after the roof of his van truck blew off on Interstate 89. New Hampshire State Police were called to the scene of an accident near the exit 17 earlier this week after a driver hit a large piece of metal while driving. Further investigation revealed that the piece of metal was the roof of a large utility vehicle that had flown off a truck. The truck driver only stopped briefly after the incident before driving off, but the victim was able to provide police with a description and license plate number. Officers from the Canaan Police Department then observed the suspect vehicle driving down Route 4 in Canaan and were able to arrest the driver. Police determined that the driver, Ross King, 40, of Houston, hit a bridge in New York City the day before and continued driving despite extensive roof damage and other safety violations. King was arrested for driving under the influence of narcotics and later released ahead of his court appearance in November. He was also taken out of service for 24 hours due to his condition and for having a fake logbook. The truck was inspected and taken out of service due to its condition. No one was injured in the incident.
