KEVON HUGHES 

Driver arrested for second offense DWI after Portsmouth crash


PORTSMOUTH — U.S. Route 1, Lafayette Road, near the Portsmouth-Rye line was closed for three hours late Saturday night into early this morning after an alleged drunk driver drove his truck into a utility pole, police said.


Portsmouth police said that at about 8:51 p.m. Saturday night, a Toyota Tundra traveling southbound on Route 1 ran off the road and crashed into a utility pole near the town line, snapping that pole and then crashing into a second pole before coming to rest in a snow bank.


Electrical, telephone and cable wires were knocked to the street, forcing police to divert traffic for about three-and-one-half hours. The road was reopened at about 1 a.m. Sunday, but delays were reported as utility workers continued the job of re-stringing the wires.

 


Police arrested Kevon Hughes, 45, of Portsmouth for second offense drunken driving.
