2-year-old in car in N.H. speeding accident
The state police said a 2-year-old girl was in the back seat of a car that crashed after traveling 90 mph on an interstate in Manchester.
The child suffered minor bruises.
Investigators said a trooper clocked the car driving at the high speed on Interstate 93 south near Exit 6 at about 4:15 p.m. Tuesday.
The trooper caught up with the car on Interstate 293 North. WMUR reported the police said that at that time, the driver was traveling 95 mph and apparently attempting to get away from the trooper.
The car got off at Exit 2 and struck another car, which was heading through the intersection at Brown Avenue.
The police identified the driver of the speeding car as 21-year-old Tevin Perez of Allenstown, who suffered bruises. The 2-year-old, the daughter of his girlfriend, was in the back. The woman driving the other car also suffered minor injuries.
Perez was arraigned on charges of reckless conduct, disobeying an officer, endangering the welfare of a child and others.
“We were fortunate that the trooper was able to catch up to it,” Sgt. Nate Noyes said.
