HAMPTON FALLS, N.H. (AP) — Three people were killed and a fourth suffered life-threatening injuries in a crash that went unnoticed for at least 16 hours in Hampton Falls.
State police believe the crash happened as early as 6:30 p.m. Saturday night but it wasn’t reported until 11:40 a.m. Sunday, when a passer-by walking along the roadway noticed the car hidden in a stand of trees.

Investigators believe the car was traveling west on Route 88 when it went off the road going around a curve. Excessive speed appears to have contributed to the crash, police said.
The driver, 21-year-old Jacob Raymond died. Also killed were Sarah Frost, 18, and Stephen Hansen, 22. A third passenger, 19-year-old Daniel Petruzzelli, was transported with Portsmouth Regional Hospital with life-threatening injuries.
