Motor Vehicle Accident, Route 101 West, Brentwood

On Monday, November 6, 2017 at approximately 12:04 am, the New Hampshire State Police responded to a motor vehicle crash along Route 101 westbound in the Town of Brentwood. Upon arrival, Troopers learned that one of the vehicles involved had fled the scene. The operator of the remaining vehicle, a Toyota Prius, reported that a suspect had approached him at a high rate of speed and struck the back-end of his vehicle. This action forced the victim to deviate from the roadway and roll-over. The victim's vehicle came to a rest on the driver's side.

Evidence immediately collected from the scene identified the suspect vehicle as a white Volkswagen. While the victim was being treated by medical personnel, other Troopers searched the area and located the suspect vehicle at the weigh station on Route 101 westbound in the Town of Epping. The vehicle, a Volkswagen Eurovan, was towed and the driver was subsequently arrested for his actions. He has been identified as William Rowe, age 65, of Manchester, New Hampshire. Rowe has been charged with Driving While Intoxicated and Conduct After an Accident. He is due to appear at the 10th Circuit Brentwood Court on December 6, 2017 at 0800 hours. The driver of the Toyota Prius sustained minor injuries and was treated at the Exeter Hospital.

No further information is available at this time. The circumstances of this crash remain under investigation and the charges related to these events may be upgraded at a later time. Should anyone have further information related to this crash, they are asked to contact Trooper Nathan Sleight at 603-679-3333.
