WAKEFIELD, N.H. (AP) - Police say an unlicensed driver trying to pass a car on a snowy road in New Hampshire died after colliding head-on with a car carrying four Secret Service agents on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's protective detail.
The accident happened about 7 p.m. Tuesday in Wakefield, near the Maine state line.
Police say the agents were heading south on Route 16, when a northbound car with three people crossed a double yellow solid line and hit them.
Killed was 45-year-old Bruce Danforth. Wakefield Police Chief Kenneth Fifield says Danforth didn't have a valid license.
A Secret Service spokeswoman says the agents sustained serious, but non-life-threatening injuries. Two passengers in Danforth's car were taken to hospitals; their conditions weren't immediately known.
Clinton says she was saddened to hear of the crash.
