NH volunteer arrives at crash that killed daughter

Associated Press |


A New Hampshire volunteer firefighter who was among the first to arrive at the scene of a deadly crash unknowingly helped pull his own daughter from the wreckage.

Thirty-year-old Katie Hamilton of Brookline was killed in the accident around 9 a.m. Christmas Eve at the intersection of Routes 13 and 130. The mother of three young daughters worked as a plumber for her father Steve Whitcomb’s business.

Brookline Police Sgt. Douglas Barnett said Hamilton was southbound on Route 13 preparing to turn left when a truck driven by 31-year-old Greg Cullen of Milford hit the rear of her car and sent it into the northbound lane. She was then broadsided by a Ford F-250 pick-up truck driven by 37-year-old James Ciprotti of Weare. Neither man was injured.

A US Official Feared HealthCare.Gov Would ‘Crash At Take-off’ In July

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Almost three months before the botched launch of, a U.S. health official expressed frustration with a main contractor working on the website, fearing quality assurance issues could “crash the plane at take-off,” according to government documents obtained by Reuters.

The documents were released by Republican investigators with the House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee.

Republican lawmakers, who have consistently sought to undermine President Barack Obama‘s signature health system overhaul, are probing the law’s disastrous rollout.

Two series of internal emails in July between officials at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), including project manager Henry Chao, describe struggles with contractors, staff shortages and software problems long before the federal healthcare website crashed on its October 1 launch and threw the rollout of Obamacare into political turmoil.

In a July 16 email sent ahead of a meeting with then-prime contractor CGI Federal, Chao describes the agency’s low confidence level in the project work, from constant struggles with releases to changing delivery dates and poor quality assurance on software.

“I just need to feel more confident they are not going to crash the plane at take-off,” Chao says in the email, which was among several documents the Republican investigators released.

Officials at CGI Federal, the U.S. subsidiary of Canada‘s CGI Group Inc, were not immediately available for comment.

In congressional testimony released October 23, CGI Federal blamed early website problems on another contractor’s software and also said the federal government was ultimately responsible for the website’s performance.

CMS released a statement that did not directly address Chao’s email but described the challenging task of building “This is a complex project with a short timeline,” CMS said.

Chao, the deputy chief information officer at CMS, declined a request to speak directly with Reuters.

President Barack Obama and administration officials have come under fire for launching a malfunctioning website, but it’s not clear if officials knew the extent of the site’s problems or when they knew.

A day after writing the email about CGI, Chao assured a House Oversight and Government Reform subcommitteethat would be ready on time.

It is not known whether Chao learned new information to change his assessment in the intervening hours.

On July 20, he distributed a video link to the testimony via email and urged CMS staff to make good on the pledge to lawmakers.

“I wanted to share this with you so you can see and hear that both Marilyn and I under oath stated we are going to make October 1,” Chao wrote.

“I would like you (to) put yourself in my shoes standing before Congress, which in essence is standing before the American public, and know that you speak the tongue of not necessarily just past truths but the truth that you will make happen.”

But, the federal government‘s health insurance marketplace portal for millions of uninsured people in 36 states, crashed shortly after its launch and has been plagued by technical problems even since.

Kasey Kahne says anger boiled over into interview

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Kasey Kahne said he was frustrated he’d blown his championship chances by making a “hardheaded mistake” at New Hampshire, and it boiled over into his brief televised interview that left some viewers wondering what was wrong.

Kahne said Tuesday there was nothing physically wrong with him following his accident at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Rather, he realized immediately after his crash with 47 laps remaining Sunday that his title hopes were over, and he allowed his anger to derail an interview with ESPN reporter Jerry Punch.

“I screwed up and I was frustrated. Two races in, I’m already out of the Chase. It’s a (crummy) deal,” Kahne said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.

MATT AND KYLE SHOW: JGR drivers in sync, but for how long?

Fans watching Kahne’s post-crash interview on television immediately took to social media to say Kahne appeared dazed and confused, and some speculated he possibly had a concussion. Punch tried to ask Kahne what happened to cause the crash, and Kahne said, “I don’t know. I’m not sure what happened.”

Punch tried again, and Kahne didn’t offer any more insight. After a third question from Punch, Kahne told him he couldn’t hear him and the interview came to an awkward end.

“I couldn’t hear what he was saying. I knew he asked what had happened. At that point, I didn’t know exactly what had happened. I knew we were three-wide getting into Turn 3. Did we have a little contact, and that’s why we spun? I wasn’t positive on that. But I was really just mad, and I didn’t think too much of (the interview) until I saw people thought something was wrong with me.”

Kahne’s health was just fine, he said, and he’d already been medically cleared by the care center. He returned to his race car with 25 laps remaining in the race.

But the damage was done: Kahne had been running eighth at the time of the accident, which occurred when he was stubbornly racing Brian Vickers for position on a restart, and he wound up 37th. It dropped him to last in the 13-driver Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field.

“I just screwed up. I was under him and we were really close together and racing hard and you can lose grip pretty easy off of (Turn) 4, and I maybe should have just backed up a little bit,” Kahne said. “But I was trying to stay beside him to be there when we got to the next corner. I needed to just give up and get in line and try to pass him later. I didn’t want to give up that one spot, and I ended up giving up 30 spots because I was hardheaded and made a hardheaded mistake.”

Now Kahne is 71 points behind leader Matt Kenseth, winner of the first two Chase races. It’s more than a full race behind Kenseth, and Kahne has resigned himself to his fate.

It’s tough to swallow for Kahne, who worked so hard over the summer to earn a spot in the field.

“The first thing you think about is you are racing to make the Chase, and now you are out of it with eight races still to go,” he said. “It’s just so many points out. I could see Matt having one bad race, everybody having one bad race. But not two bad races. The guys who are going to win the championship are definitely not going to have two bad races.”

Kahne isn’t writing off the final two months of the season. He said he felt awful Sunday night and most of Monday, but perked back up Tuesday to reset his goals for Hendrick Motorsports and his No. 5 team.

“I feel terrible for my guys, and I feel like we are out of that part of it, the championship, but there’s so many good tracks in the Chase for us coming up,” he said. “I feel like we can still come back and get in the top 10, and maybe even better that. As much as I love giving speeches, I want to be part of Las Vegas. I owe it to my guys.”

You Won’t Believe This Amazing Crash Photo

Good morning, Hampton and North Hampton. Here are five things you need to know on Thursday, June 13:

1. Today’s Top Thing: New Hampshire State Police sent us some of the most incredible crash photos we’ve ever seen after a pickup truck slammed into (over?) the Hampton Toll Plaza on Interstate 95 on Wednesday morning. Fortunately, no one was seriously hurt.

2. Get Your Sports Team on Patch: Want to see scores, information and photos from WHS and other games featured prominently on Patch? Here’s how .

3. What Else Is Happening Today? The North Hampton Cemetery Trustees meet at 3:30 p.m. today at the Center Cemetery.

4. This Day in History: On this day in 1966, the Supreme Court handed down its decision in Miranda v. Arizona, establishing the principle that all criminal suspects must be advised of their rights before interrogation. Now considered standard police procedure, “You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can, and will, be used against you in court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford one, one will be appointed to you,” has been heard so many times in television and film dramas that it has become almost cliche.

5. Today’s Forecast:


Chance of showers, with a high near 65.


Showers likely, with a low near 52.
