MANCHESTER, N.H. – At approximately 1:45 a.m. on July 8, 2019, police responded to the area of 290 Dubuque Street for an accident. Upon arrival, officers found a car stopped up against a shed with the engine still running and the transmission still in the drive position.
Two people were still inside, a passed-out woman slouched over the steering wheel, and a teenager lying flat across the back seat.
Officers were initially unable to wake them by knocking on the windows, with the pair eventually waking up after the officers put the car in park. Neither of the car’s occupants were injured.
The driver was identified as Dawn Parker, 42, of Manchester. Park was slurring her speech and having trouble keeping her eyes open. After consenting to a roadside sobriety test, Parker was arrested.
Parker is charged with alleged driving under the influence of drugs or liquor and endangering the welfare of a child.
She is scheduled to appear in Manchester Circuit Court on July 8.
