Truck driver accused of not clearing snow off roof faces criminal charges
AP December 17, 2020 | 9:18 AM LONDONDERRY, N.H. (AP) — A box truck driver has been accused of not clearing snow and ice from his roof that dislodged and struck a car driver on Route 102, police in Londonderry said.
Richard Leiter, 60, of Derry, faces charges of vehicular assault and reckless conduct, both misdemeanors, and a negligent driving violation in the Dec.
9 crash. He was arrested Wednesday. The ice and snow went through a car windshield.
The driver, Michael Conry, 22, of Londonderry, suffered serious, but non-life-threatening injuries to his face and eyes, police said. He underwent surgery to remove pieces of glass from his eyes.

Leiter was released on personal recognizance bail and has cooperated with officers, police said. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Feb.
17. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer; messages seeking comment were left for him.
A New Hampshire law known as “Jessica’s Law” requires drivers to remove snow and ice from the roof of their vehicles before driving on public roads. Police planned to hold a news conference to discuss the law Friday.
This story has been corrected to show that police in Londonderry made the arrest, not state police.
