Drugged Driving Suspected in Seabrook, NH

A man who was critically injured in an accident on Sunday, August 4, 2019, will find himself facing serious criminal charges if and when he recovers and is released from the hospital. State police responded to the single-car accident, which happened on I-95 in Seabrook. Richard Beauregard’s 2018 Ford Explorer apparently left the road, traveled along an embankment in the center median, and then rolled over. No one else was involved or injured in the accident. A picture taken from the scene shows Beauregard’s vehicle as a crumpled, mangled mess.

In a 2015 report “Drug-Impaired Driving” released by the Governors Highway Safety Association and the Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility, found that drugs were more common than alcohol in the systems of fatally injured drivers. Forty-three percent of those tested had drugs in their system, compared to 37% of fatally injured who had alcohol in their system.

In New Hampshire, drugged driving is considered to be impaired driving, and just like with driving while impaired (DWI) laws concerning alcohol, it has serious consequences, including fines, jail time, and losing one’s driver’s license. In addition to these penalties, New Hampshire requires anyone convicted of DWI to undergo an Impaired Driver Care Management Program (IDCMP).

This program will screen and evaluate a person to determine if there is a substance abuse issue, and it requires the individual to participate in education, treatment, and recovery services. Individuals who have to participate in a IDCMP have to cover all the costs for the classes and treatment out of their own pocket.
