Lebanon — A combination of snow and ice flying off the top of another vehicle shattered a woman’s windshield as she drove north on Interstate 89 in Lebanon today, according to New Hampshire State Police.

Jasmine Nadeau, of Plainfield, was not injured in the incident that took place between exits 18 and 19 at roughly 12:30 this afternoon. 

She was alone in her vehicle, a Nissan Rogue.

New Hampshire State Police Trooper Michael Catalfamo said the windshield was struck by a “combination of snow and ice.” Nadeau said the vehicle was a blue SUV. 

Shortly after the incident, Lebanon Police took to Facebook to remind motorists about clearing snow and ice from vehicles before driving.

“Often referred to as ‘Jessica’s Law,’ failing to clear snow and ice from the roof of your vehicle constitutes negligent driving and can be punished by a fine of up to $500 for the first offense,” police said in the post. “More importantly, clearing your roof can save lives as the frozen snow and ice can fly off while you're driving and impact another vehicle.
