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.

Anyone who witnessed or may information regarding this incident is urged to contact Trooper Megan Walsh by email at Megan.Walsh@dos.nh.gov or by calling 603-223-8496.
