    A woman was arrested and charged with driving under the influence after refusing to pull over for police.

    According to police, an officer was patrolling on Wason Road in Hudson, New Hampshire Friday at about 1 a.m. when she noticed a 2017 Chevy Cruze in front of her operating in an erratic manner.

    The officer tried to make a traffic stop, but the driver, Morene Gagnon, 55, of Hudson, refused to stop, police said.

    The officer pursued the car and, in the area of 111 Wason Road, the car crossed into the oncoming lane and struck a telephone pole. Gagnon lost control, careened into the northbound lane and off the roadway, crashing into an embankment.
