An allegedly impaired Tamworth driver refused to stop for police last week and instead led them on a chase, crashing into a utility pole. NH DWI Attorney John Tenn says the driver made the situation worse by fleeing and now faces even more legal consequences.

DWI is a serious offense, and it carries a number of consequences.

State troopers received a report of an impaired driver last Monday, but when they tried to pull the driver over, he fled. The driver was arrested only after he crashed his car on a utility pole. New Hampshire DUI lawyer John Tenn says the man has likely made consequences he faces much worse for himself.

State police chased the man’s car along Route 16 from Tamworth to Conway. Once the vehicle entered Conway, police were able to puncture its tires. But the man continued to flee until he eventually lost control of the vehicle and smashed into the pole. The driver has been arrested on charges including driving while intoxicated according to WMUR (7.23.13).

“DWI is a serious offense, and it carries a number of consequences,” said Tenn, one of the founding partners of Tenn And Tenn, P.A., a New Hampshire personal Injury and DWI law firm. “Any DWI arrest is a serious matter.” Tenn notes that the driver could also face criminal charges for resisting arrest.

Tenn said that, by allegedly fleeing, the man also increased the chance of injuring someone else on the roads, for which he could also have had civil liability.

Although the chase ended without serious injuries, Tenn says not all such cases are so fortunate.
