Father killed in head-on crash two years after son

The New Hampshire man killed in a truck crash last week died just two years after his son was also killed in a head-on collision, the Associated Press reports.

Police said Rodney Gladle was driving a tractor trailer on Interstate 495 in Milford when he lost control of the rig Friday night. He ended up in the oncoming lane, where he collided head on with a car driven by a Stoughton man, who also was killed. Police didn't identify the victims until Sunday.

In 2005, Gladle's son, Rodney Gladle Jr., was one of two drivers killed in a head-on collision in Belmont, N.H. At the time, Laconia police said they had tried to stop Rodney Gladle Jr. for a motor vehicle violation, but he sped up and crossed into Belmont.
