Motor Vehicle Pursuit/Arrest, Campton to Franconia

scene of the arrest

On Tuesday, October 1, 2019 at around 4:42p.m., the New Hampshire State Police received the report of a vehicle operating hazardously on Interstate 93 Northbound in the town of New Hampton. The vehicle was said to have been swerving and almost struck two vehicles and a bridge abutment. Troopers responded to area and located the suspect vehicle traveling on Interstate 93 Northbound in the town of Thornton, and attempted to stop the vehicle to which the operator refused. Tire deflation devices were successfully and safely deployed deflating three of the vehicle's four tires. The operator continued to refuse to stop, leading troopers and other assisting law enforcement in a low-speed pursuit through Franconia Notch Parkway to where a second set of tire deflation devices successfully and safely deflated the fourth and final tire. The vehicle eventually went off the left side of the roadway into the soft median around mile marker 114.8 in the town of Franconia where it got stuck. The operator and lone occupant of the vehicle, identified as,

GREGORY MOOERS
AGE: 65

was taken into custody without incident or injury and was transported to the Littleton Regional Hospital for further evaluation. Troopers were able to safely, and successfully, mitigate a potentially dangerous situation by isolating the suspect vehicle and preventing injury or property damage. MOOERS is charged with Reckless Driving and Disobeying a Police Officer and will be required to appear before the 2nd Circuit-District Division-Plymouth Court on November 25, 2019 to answer to those charges. At this time, the investigation is on-going. Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or may have any further information is encouraged to contact Trooper Micah Jones at 603-223-8885 or micah.jones@dos.nh.gov.

The New Hampshire State Police was assisted on-scene by members of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, the Lincoln Police Department, the Franconia Police Department, the Woodstock Police Department, the Grafton County Sheriff's Department and the Franconia Life Squad.
