    New Hampshire State Police have arrested a man they say was drunk when he crashed into two vehicles at a construction zone early Tuesday morning in Milton. 

    Police say Donald Pierce, 56, of Kingston was traveling southbound on Route 16 when he approached a part of the road that required both directions of travel to use one lane with police direction. 

    Pierce allegedly drove through the cones and struck a vehicle driven by Nicholas Poirier, 19, of Dover. 

    He then continued and struck a vehicle driven by Dominic Albano, 36, of Lowell, Massachusetts.
