In another twist, two charges dropped in case against man who allegedly hit in-law with SUV

On July 27, the Concord Monitor reported that Robert Pond, a Weare, New Hampshire resident, had allegedly attempted to murder his brother-in-law, Jason Potter, by hitting him with his Chevrolet Blazer. Potter's pelvis was broken in the crash, and he is being treated at Concord Hospital.

Pond fled the scene of the accident, but later volunteered to go to the Weare police station, where he was arrested and charged in relation to the incident on four counts: felony conduct after an accident, first-degree assault, attempted second-degree murder and reckless conduct.

The Union Leader reported that in a hearing on August 3, a judge at the Goffstown 9th Circuit Court ruled in favor of the defense on dismissing the former two counts. However, he still faces the charges of reckless conduct and attempted second-degree murder.

There have been conflicting witness statements in the investigation. Potter and several witnesses on Cross Road, where the pedestrian crash took place, claimed that Pond had deliberately swerved his SUV to hit Potter. However, a passenger in Pond's vehicle alleged that Potter had run into the car as Pond drove past, causing his injuries.

Pond is being held on $75,000 bail and is currently on parole for a past drug offense. His wife, Jenn Pond, told the Monitor that since her husband's release in February of this year, Pond had been trying get his life back on track.

If you or someone you know is facing charges related to a car crash, a consultation with a New Hampshire car accident lawyer can help you take the best possible course of action and get the justice you deserve.
