Driver accused of threatening passenger, crashing into house
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Police in New Hampshire have accused a driver of threatening to kill his passenger and crashing his vehicle into a home before trying to run away.
Police on Tuesday night charged 47-year-old Paul Loukedes, of Concord, with attempt to commit murder, driving while intoxicated, criminal threatening, and other charges.
Police said Loukedes was involved in a domestic dispute with his passenger and made comments that he was going to kill that person. They said he accelerated the vehicle and drove into a home, damaging both property and the vehicle.
Police eventually arrested Loukedes, who was scheduled for a court appearance Wednesday afternoon. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer and a phone number couldn’t be found for him. The passenger was injured and was taken to a hospital.
