PELHAM, N.H. — A motor vehicle crash in Pelham resulted in a driving under the influence charge for the third time in less than four days, police said.
Matthew Poff, 22, of Pelham, was charged with DUI during the early morning hours on Sunday following a single-vehicle crash on Lannan Drive, according to a Pelham Police Department press release.
Police said an investigation determined at about 2:30 a.m. a 2013 Subaru Impreza, operated by Poff, exited the roadway for approximately 150 feet before striking a granite post, which snapped into two pieces. The vehicle then crossed back over the road, before coming to a rest on the lawn of 50 Lannan Drive.
Poff, who was the lone occupant of the vehicle, was uninjured in the crash.
In addition to DUI, police said Poff was charged with two counts of criminal mischief. The 22-year-old was released on his own recognizance and is slated to appear in Salem District Court for arraignment at 8 a.m. Dec. 5.
Sunday’s morning crash was the third wreck in Pelham that led to a DUI charge since Wednesday.
Police arrested Paul Terpko, 61, of Methuen, Mass., after he allegedly caused a three-vehicle wreck at the intersection of Bridge Street and Beacon Hill Road at about 3 p.m. Wednesday.
On Thanksgiving night, police arrested Ramon Rodriguez, 30, of Chelmsford, Mass., following a single-vehicle crash on Bush Hill Road.
There were no serious injuries reported in any of the crashes.
