A New Hampshire State Police dispatcher says 50 to 100 vehicles are involved in a pileup on Interstate 93.

Dispatcher D. Joseph Miller in the Twin Mountain Barracks says there have been some injuries, but they are not considered to be life-threatening.

State Transportation spokesman Bill Boynton said the accidents occurred sometime after 10:30 a.m. Friday near Ashland. The accidents happened in the northbound lanes, which are currently closed to traffic.

Snow has been falling on and off in the state and parts of the highway are snow-covered.
