    Police: NH Man Arrested in 3-Vehicle Crash Left Manchester Court Dispute

    Police in New Hampshire say a man who abruptly drove off from a disturbance at a courthouse caused a three-vehicle crash that injured him and three others.

    Police arrested 28-year-old Scott Sprague, of Manchester, New Hampshire, on charges of second-degree assault, attempted assault and reckless conduct.

    Police say Sprague was involved in a disturbance at Manchester District Court and a police sergeant spoke with him before he speeded away Wednesday.

    Witnesses said he narrowly missed hitting a couple of pedestrians before striking a car that crashed into another vehicle. Sprague suffered a broken leg. Three others were hurt, two of them seriously.
