New Hampshire State Police say they managed to track down a wrong-way driver who went north in the southbound lanes of the Everett Turnpike in Nashua early this morning, and then discovered the wayward driver was a repeat drunken driver.
Fortunately, no one was hurt.
State Police say they first began getting telephone calls about the wrong-way driver about 1:30 a.m., and that Trooper Juan Infante located the wrong way vehicle between exits 7 and 8 (Route 101 and Somerset Parkway). The vehicle didn’t immediately stop, but Infante eventually corralled it.
The driver was identified as Mark Ledoux, 47, of Hudson, and police say his blood alcohol content was two and a half times the legal limit.
Ledoux was charged with driving while intoxicated, subsequent offense. He was released on bail, and will be arraigned in July.
