Pelham man faces DWI charge after crash
PELHAM — A 35-year-old Pelham man with two previous driving-while-intoxicated convictions was charged with drunken driving after he lost control of his car on Bush Hill Road and crashed down an embankment Saturday, according to police.
Police said Jeffrey Daigle was traveling eastbound around 1 p.m. when his car went off the road and plunged down a 12-foot embankment, landing partially submerged in water.
Pelham Police Sgt. Anne Therriault was patrolling the area when she saw the crash and found Daigle unconscious.
Daigle, who regained consciousness a few minutes later, was pulled out of his heavily damaged vehicle by emergency responders from Pelham Fire Department.
He was taken to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center in Nashua, where he was treated for minor injuries and released. He was then taken into custody at the police department. Police said alcohol and icy road conditions were factors in the crash.
Daigle was charged with DWI. Police said he previously had been convicted of the same offense in Nashua in 1996 and in Salem in 2003.
Bush Hill Road had to be closed for about an hour because of the crash, the second time within a week that a storm-related crash closed the road.
