Travis Worth of New Ipswich, 37, was arraigned at Hillsborough Superior Court South on Thursday on charges of negligent homicide and driving while intoxicated in the Dec. 1 accident on Route 31 in Greenville that killed 35-year-old Kyle Tetrault of Wilton.

Worth entered pleas of not guilty on both counts.

Tetrault’s passenger, 38-year-old Robert Tetreault of Wilton, was hospitalized.

According to New Hampshire State Police, at approximately 7:39 p.m., the Greenville Police Department responded to a motor vehicle collision on Route 31. Police stated that Worth’s red GMC pickup truck crossed the center line and collided with Kyle Tetreault’s Volkswagen Jetta.

Kyle Tetreault died as a result of the collision, and Robert Tetreault was airlifted to UMass Memorial Hospital with serious injuries.

At the request of the Greenville Police Department, the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction (C.A.R.) Unit responded to the scene and assumed the lead of the on-scene investigation, which closed Route 31 for several hours. 

The unit received assistance from the New Hampshire State Police Troop B Barracks, as well as the Greenville Police, the Wilton Police and area fire departments. 

Worth was arrested, and after refusing the services of a bail commissioner, was held in lieu of bail at Valley Street Jail for arraignment Dec. 2.

According to State Police, at this time, impairment appears to be the primary cause of the collision, although all possible contributing factors are being considered. 

Anyone who may have further information related to this crash is asked to please contact TFC Nate Goodwin via phone at 603-545-4288 or by email at Nathaniel.D.Goodwin@dos.nh.gov.
