DIXVILLE, N.H. (AP) - Two people have died in separate car accidents in New Hampshire.

Police say a car driven by 60-year-old George Heald, of Colebrook, struck a piece of paving equipment that was parked off the shoulder of Route 26 in Dixville. The equipment was in a construction zone that was inactive at the time of the crash Friday afternoon.

Police say Heald went off the road after striking traffic cones and a guardrail. The car struck an embankment before going airborne and striking the paving equipment. Heald was pronounced dead at the scene.

In Londonderry, police say a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle on a road at about 6 p.m. Friday. The pedestrian was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Her identity has not been released. The driver is cooperating with police.
