Police suspect drunk driving in fatal New Hampshire accident

It would certainly be tragic to have been behind the wheel in a vehicle involved in an accident that proved fatal to a passenger. One can only imagine the grief and devastation experienced by a driver in such dire circumstances. There have been instances of similar accidents in New Hampshire that have led to motorists facing drunk driving charges in court, no doubt intensifying the stress of the situation.

A man traveling on Route 16 was recently involved in a collision when his pickup truck apparently crashed into a small group of trees. Sadly, the 48-year-old passenger in his vehicle did not survive his injuries in the accident. The driver, age 49, has since been charged with negligent homicide in the tragedy.

Police have stated that they suspect alcohol to have been a leading factor in the recent crash. The driver was reportedly ejected from the pickup truck upon impact. He suffered physical injuries in the collision and was taken to an area hospital for treatment. The road was closed to all traffic for several hours after the incident occurred.

When an accident investigation leads to drunk driving charges against a New Hampshire motorist, that person has the right to seek immediate legal guidance in the matter. The court will consider many determining factors in its decision. An experienced criminal lawyer knows how to assess a situation and make use of all available options that will serve in the best interests of a defendant to obtain as positive an outcome as possible.
