    A former New Hampshire state lawmaker charged with trying to lure a 14-year-old girl into a sexual encounter has been accused of drunken driving following a three-car accident. 

    Former state Rep. Kyle Tasker, a 31-year-old Republican, resigned in March after his arrest on drug charges and a charge of trying to lure a minor for sex. He and his lawyer haven't commented. 

    Police took a report of a car swerving all over Route 125 in Rochester at about 5:40 p.m. Tuesday, then came upon the accident farther south. 

    Police say the driver, identified as Tasker, struck a car stopped at a traffic signal that was pushed into the rear of another stopped car. All three drivers refused medical treatment.
