Alleged hit-and-run driver arrested for driving while intoxicated

A man was arrested on charges of DUI hit-and-run in Middleton, New Hampshire. Middleton police were first contacted at approximately 4:30 p.m., after an alleged hit-and-run car accident occurred. According to a witness who saw the collision take place, a black pickup truck had slammed into a large stone wall.

The witness further alleged that the driver who caused the collision had fled in the direction of town. Middleton Police located a black pickup truck almost immediately following their receipt of the call. The truck was traveling along Kings Highway. Another witness of the crash had been following the truck, and she started to beep her horn and point at the truck as soon as she saw police in the vicinity.

An officer tried to pull the truck over, but the driver of the pickup allegedly continued down the road at modest speeds of under 40 mph. Assistance soon came from partnering law enforcement agencies, the Farmington Police and New Hampshire State Police.

The 50-year-old male driver of the pickup was eventually stopped. Police arrested the man and charged him with DWI and conduct after an accident. He may also face more charges at a later time. The man was later released after posting $3,000 bail. His arraignment is scheduled for Oct. 21.

In spite of being arrested on DWI charges, accused New Hampshire residents will remain innocent of the charges until -- and only if -- they are proved to be otherwise beyond reasonable doubt in a court of law. Until that time, those accused of drunk driving or driving while intoxicated will not face any kind of punishments for their alleged crimes.
