Driver in New Hampshire accident under investigation alleges he was sober

Manchester police are still in the process of conducting an investigation in the July 28 crash that killed Andrew Roy and injured the driver, Ian Bolser.

The crash occurred in the early morning on Sunday, when the friends were returning from a night at Hampton Beach. Bolser, 19, was driving Roy's Mitsubishi Lancer on Interstate 293 when the car went off an exit ramp, hit a sound barrier, and rolled over. Roy was pronounced dead at the scene.

Bolser told the New Hampshire Sunday News in an interview that he had fallen asleep at the wheel and had not been drinking. He said that his blood had been drawn in transit to the hospital and that the police told him his toxicology report was negative.

Though state police would not corroborate Bolser's comments, Sargeant Paul Hunt told the newspaper that he expected the investigation to be completed shortly.

"We're going to be extremely thorough, looking at any and all contributing factors that would have resulted in the crash," he said.

Police records showed that Bolser had been involved in another accident in June, was stopped for speeding, and was arrested for transporting alcohol on separate occasions this year. However, Bolser told the newspaper in an email that they had "nothing to do with the accident."

Bolser has no violations on his driving record and has not yet been charged in connection with the July 28 crash.

If you have been involved in an accident or are facing charges for a traffic violation in the Granite State, a consultation with an experienced New Hampshire car accident lawyer can help you determine your options and defend your case.
