On August 22, 2016 at 7:30 am Romaro Cabral, age 39, Chelsea, Massachusetts, was travelling northbound on Route 93 in Canterbury. Cabral, who was later determined to be intoxicated, drifted from his lane into the construction area and sideswiped a construction vehicle. Road workers told Trooper Ardini that only seconds prior to the crash one of the workers was standing at the area of impact and would have been struck. Cabral fled the scene. Trooper First Class Jeff Ardini, who was working a paid construction detail, was able to locate and apprehend Cabral. Trooper Ardini conducted an investigation into the cause of the crash and determined that Cabral was impaired. Cabral was arrested and charged with: Driving while intoxicated, subsequent offense; Conduct after an accident; and Operating without a valid license.

Cabral was released on Bail to appear in the Concord District Court on September 2, 2016.
