CONCORD, NH – A Concord man was arrested Oct. 30, 2016, at approximately 11 p.m. hours after Troopers from the New Hampshire State Police Department responded to a report of a wrong-way driver on Interstate 393 in Concord. The reporting callers reported that a van was traveling eastbound in the westbound lane.
Trooper Megan Walsh and Trooper Max King along with Chichester police stopped the vehicle near the I-393 westbound on-ramp and Route 4. The driver, Karihungu Ntihinyurwa, 36, of Concord, was taken into custody without incident and charged with driving while intoxicated, second offense; reckless conduct; and open container.
The results of his breath test indicated his blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit to operate a vehicle, police say. Concord Police is also investigating Ntihinyurwa for conduct after an accident, which allegedly occurred before he drove the wrong way on I-393.
Ntihinyurwa was released on $4000 personal recognizance bail pending a court arraignment in the Concord District Court on November 4, 2016.
