On Thursday February 2, 2017 at approximately 12:36 pm, Trooper Gagne came upon what he appeared to be a motor vehicle crash on Interstate 95 southbound in the town of Greenland. Further investigation determined the suspect vehicle, a 1996 Toyota Corolla, struck the rear of a tractor-trailer unit, left the travel portion of the roadway and drove into the median strip. The operator, now driving on only 3 tires, returned to the highway and fled the scene south on Route 95. Trooper Gagne continued southbound following a debris field of tire and vehicle parts. Trooper Gagne located the suspect vehicle on Interstate 95 when he observed tire and vehicle parts falling off the vehicle as it drove. Trooper Gagne stopped the suspect vehicle and determined that while the operator was uninjured, there were indicators he was impaired. The operator, Alexander Blomquist, age 27 from Merrimac, Massachusetts was arrested for DWI 2nd and Conduct After an Accident. Blomquist will be arraigned on February 6, 2017 at 8:00 am out of the 10th Circuit District Court – Portsmouth.

Those with information regarding this incident are encouraged to contact Trooper Craig Gagne, New Hampshire State Police Troop-A at (603) 223-8490.
