Miles Murray Henniker Obituary
The community of Henniker, New Hampshire, is mourning the sudden loss of 19-year-old Miles Murray, who tragically passed away in a car crash in Belchertown.
The incident unfolded on Sunday night when a state trooper attempted to pull over a 2011 Nissan Altima. Instead of stopping, the driver accelerated, leading to a high-speed chase. The pursuit ended tragically when the Altima crashed into a mulch patch, sending the vehicle airborne over the rock wall at 79 North Main Street. The collision was so violent that it shattered trees and light poles.
Upon landing, the Nissan’s engine block was ejected into the air, creating a four-foot-wide hole in the second floor of 73 North Main Street. The car then collided with the front end of a parked Jeep Wrangler, causing further damage.
Tragically, the 19-year-old driver, Miles Murray, was also ejected from the car and pronounced dead at the scene.
The Massachusetts State Police and the Belchertown Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding this heartbreaking accident.
In the wake of this terrible loss, we extend our deepest sympathies to Miles’s family and friends. Words cannot adequately express the sorrow we feel for this promising young life cut short. We encourage those who knew Miles to share their condolences and prayers, offering comfort to the grieving family during this challenging time.
