A 27-year-old New Hampshire woman is facing serious legal problems. She stands accused of leaving the scene of a car accident, in addition to numerous other charges. Police believe the woman was intoxicated when her vehicle slammed into an unoccupied parked vehicle.
A witness reportedly called the police saying that the woman had fled the scene following the incident. The witness also apparently had contact with the driver and told her to return to the scene of the accident. The crash occurred at approximately 10:30 p.m.
Police say they located the woman later
As typically happens in cases like this one, law enforcement eventually located the woman who is believed to have hit the parked car, then left the scene. When police officers approached her, she was attempting to change a tire on a vehicle. She apparently denied all allegations police asserted regarding the accident.
Even if someone claims to have witnessed a crime, the accused must be proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt before a conviction is possible. Anyone facing criminal charges following a New Hampshire collision for DUI or another accusation has the right to exercise all defense options available to refute those charges in court. An accused individual increases the chances of obtaining a positive outcome by relying on an experienced defense attorney to represent the client during proceedings.
