PD: Drunken Wrong-Way Driver Strikes 2 Vehicles

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

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. 

Poirier was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. No other injuries were reported. 

Pierce was charged with DWI and was released on $2,500 personal recognizance bail. He was issued a court date on Aug. 23 and was subsequently placed into protective custody.
