A Maine man faces multiple charges, including aggravated OUI, after allegedly causing a multi-vehicle crash in New Hampshire.

Where Did the Crash Happen?

Troopers with the New Hampshire State Police responded to I-95 in North Hampton just after 9:00 on Saturday evening after a report of a multi-vehicle crash. When they got to the scene, the Troopers realized that four vehicles were involved in the crash and that several people had been injured. Debris littered the roadway and so they closed all travel lanes on the southbound side of I-95 and went about getting help for those who were hurt.

How Did It Happen and Who Was Hurt?

A preliminary investigation of the crash indicated that a Subaru Outback, driven by Douglas McKay, 50 of Cape Neddick, Maine, had been traveling along I-95 North when it veered to the left and traveled across the grass median to the southbound side of the highway. The vehicle continued to travel, now into oncoming traffic, until it hit a Honda Civic, driven by Sienna Waite, 24, of Salem, Massachusetts. After that impact, two more vehicles were hit by the Civic and/or Subaru, as they broke apart from the initial impact. Those two vehicles included a Nissan Rogue, driven by Amanda Porter, 45, of Amesbury, Massachusetts, and a Mini Cooper, driven by Ethan Jury, 34, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. All four vehicles were disabled by the crash.

Three people were injured in this incident, including Mr. McKay and a pssenger in Ms. Waite's vehicle, who were both transported to a local hospital for treatment of serious, but non-life-threatening injuries. Waite was also transported to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

What are the Charges in This Case?

Douglas McKay was arrested at a local hospital for the following charges:

  • Aggravated driving under the influence of drugs of liquor
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or liquor
  • Reckless conduct
  • Vehicular assault

Because his injuries required further hospitalization, Mr. McKay was released on personal recognizance bail into the custody of the hospital, pending his first appearance in Rockingham County Superior Court.
