Driver Faces DWI Charge After I-89 Accident

Police have charged a Claremont driver with driving under the influence (DUI) and texting while driving after her car ran off the road onto the side of I-89, according to a release by New Hampshire news affiliate WMUR. No one was hurt in the accident.

The driver was traveling north on I-89 when her car grazed a guardrail and a few trees before coming to a stop. The woman was allegedly sending a text on her cell phone at the time, and police cited her for texting while driving, which is prohibited under New Hampshire law. Police did not say what prompted them to arrest her for driving under the influence of alcohol, but did say that her lack of attention to the road, caused by her texting, likely caused the New Hampshire car accident.

In New Hampshire, even if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is under the legal limit of 0.08, you may still be charged with a DUI if you have any alcohol or drugs in your system that impair your ability to drive safely. Many things can distract a motorist on the road. To maximize your safety, it is best to minimize all distractions, including using a handheld device such as a cell phone or mp3 player.
