A Massachusetts driver allegedly drove while intoxicated for at least six miles on Interstate 93 Sunday night, with a state trooper close behind trying to stop her before she was ultimately pulled over in Salem, according to police.
The incident began about 8:10 p.m. Sunday when state police received numerous cell phone calls regarding an erratic driver traveling south on Interstate 93 near Exit 5 in Londonderry.
According to state police, a trooper saw the 2007 Honda in Windham and attempted to stop it. The Honda drove into the Windham scale facility, but then drove right back out onto I-93 instead of stopping, state police said.
The trooper continued to pursue the vehicle into Salem as it continued its erratic operation, according to state police.
The vehicle was finally stopped at Exit 1 in Salem with the assistance of two other troopers and Salem police officers.
Police said the driver, identified as Margaret E. Flynn, 45, of Marlborough, Mass., refused to get out of the car. She was removed from the Honda and arrested after a brief struggle, police said.
Flynn is charged with aggravated DWI, disobeying a police officer and resisting arrest.
She was held at the Rockingham County jail pending arraignment Monday in 10th Circuit Court, Salem District Division.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact trooper Stefan J. Czyzowski at Troop B in Bedford at 603-666-3333.
