NORTH HAMPTON, N.H. — A Wells couple sustained injuries when their 2009 Subaru Legacy rear-ended a Mercedes-Benz that had crossed over from the northbound lanes into the southbound lanes of I-95 on Sunday while using a restricted access crossover at mile marker 8.8.

New Hampshire State Police said the Mercedes collided with a red 2003 Harley Davidson operated by Louis Remigio,  55, of Tewksbury, Massachusetts.  As a result of the crossover, police said in a press release, that a grey 2009 Subaru Legacy operated by John Bamford, 63, of Wells, could not stop in time to avoid a collision and rear-ended the black 2013 Mercedes-Benz C300.  

Several other vehicles were involved in the crash, which took place about 9:30 a.m. Sunday.

Bamford and his passenger, Jaclyn Bamford, 61, were taken to an area hospital for non-life threatening injuries, police said.

Remigio, the operator of the red 2003 Harley Davidson, sustained life-threatening injuries and was taken to Portsmouth Regional Hospital for treatment.  

While attempting to avoid the collision, a red 2015 Ford Explorer operated by Jay Coombs, 50, of South Portland and a black 2016 Ford F-150 operated by Scott Chertoff, 30, of Flemington, New Jersey both sustained damage to their vehicles while driving through several pieces of debris at the collision scene.

Michael Ricci, 18, of Burlington, Massachusetts, who was driving the 2013 Mercedes-Benz C300, was not injured, police said, and he was subsequently arrested and charged with felony reckless conduct.

He was being held in lieu of  $10,000  cash bail at Rockingham County Jail, awaiting arraignment on Tuesday morning at the Seabrook Circuit Court, District Division.
