Speed a Factor in Crash That Kills 1 in East Kingston, NH
A Kingston resident traveling with a child was killed in a single vehicle crash in East Kingston on Sunday afternoon.
A 2011 Toyota RAV 4 traveling north on Giles Road in East Kingston just before 3 p.m went off the road at the corner with Joslin Road and into some trees, according to East Kingston Police Chief Michael LePage. The driver of the SUV, Jason Shuryn, 33, was pronounced dead at the crash scene, the chief said.
Speed appears to be a factor in the crash, according to the chief, who said the speed limit on Giles Road is 25 mph.
The boy was taken to the Portsmouth Regional Hospital's Trauma Unit where he is being treated for serious but non-life threatening injuries. LePage did not disclose the relationship between the boy and Shuryn.
Kensington Police, Kingston Police, Exeter Police and State Police all assisted with the crash.
In April a 15-year-old girl who was a passenger in a car that skidded into a pickup on North Road (Route 108) near the Kensington border died in the crash on April 16 during a snowstorm.
