79 Year Old Woman Arrested For DWI In Rochester

On August 31st, a 79 year old woman from Florida was arrested for driving while intoxicated, which resulted in a single car accident. The woman knocked over a utility pole, and the road had to be closed. The arrest was made after police officers responded to multiple reports of a vehicle driving on two flat tires, then striking a utility pole on Little Falls Bridge Road.

According to police officers, the suspect left the paved portion of the road and subsequently struck the pole. The vehicle sustained heavy damage to the front end and was towed away from the scene. Hersey was taken by ambulance to Frisbie Hospital for non-life threatening injuries. She has been charged with a Class B DWI misdemeanor, and her arraignment was held on September 14th.

This story, which recently happened in New Hampshire, might sound humorous. Perhaps you are imagining a little old lady, drunk off her rear end, driving a car on two flat tires.

DWI are no laughing matter, and it can happen to anyone – regardless of your age.

Here are a few sobering statistics from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) you need to consider:

§  In fatal automobile accidents in 2011, the highest percentage of intoxicated drivers was for motorists between the ages of 21 to 24 (32%), followed by ages 25-34 (30%), and 35 to 44 (34%).

§  In 2013, among children aged 14 years and younger, a total of 1,149 were killed in automobile accidents. 17% (200) of these accidents involved the use of alcohol. Out of the 200 total deaths, 61% were passengers in an automobile where the driver had a blood alcohol content of .08% or higher. Another 15% were bicyclists or pedestrians who were hit by drivers with a BAC of .08% or higher.

§  The average intoxicated driver will drive drunk 80 times before their first arrest.

Are you finished laughing yet?

These are just a few reasons why the State of New Hampshire considers driving while intoxicated to be such a serious offense. If you are convicted of a first time DWI offense in New Hampshire, ou face serious penalties including having a criminal record and mandatory license loss.

Make no mistake about it: driving while intoxicated is a serious offense. However, mistakes also happen, and one offense shouldn’t ruin the rest of your future.
