ROCHESTER – After noticing sparks flying from a vehicle with a flat tire along Bridge Street, police arrested a local woman following an alleged alcohol-related accident Thursday.

Melody Goodrow, 37, of 10 Salmon Falls Estates in East Rochester, was charged with driving while intoxicated and conduct after an accident.

After stopping the Jeep Liberty, which was being driven by Goodrow along Wakefield Street, officers noticed the vehicle had sustained heavy damage to the front passenger side.

Wakefield Street was partially closed for about 30 minutes as officers investigated.

Meanwhile, police received several reports of hit-and-run accidents in the Chestnut Street area. Police determined Goodrow’s Jeep had allegedly struck a 2003 Dodge Dakota, a utility pole and a pedestrian before officers noticed her.

As a result of the accidents, a 25-year-old woman received minor injuries, but she declined further treatment, crews from Public Service of N.H. responded to replace the damaged pole and the Dakota sustained moderate damage to the driver’s side.

Goodrow, who was released on $1,000 personal recognizance bond, is scheduled to appear in Rochester District Court Nov. 26.
