Jul. 12, 2018
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Police in New Hampshire say a man who abruptly drove off from a disturbance at a courthouse caused a three-vehicle crash that injured him and three others.
Police arrested 28-year-old Scott Sprague, of Manchester, New Hampshire, on a charge of reckless conduct. Police said he initially faced additional charges of second-degree assault and attempted assault, but said Thursday the charges were amended.
Police say Sprague was involved in a disturbance at Manchester District Court and a police sergeant spoke with him before he speeded away Wednesday.
Witnesses said he narrowly missed hitting a couple of pedestrians before striking a car that crashed into another vehicle. Sprague suffered a broken leg. Three others were hurt, two seriously.
Sprague was arrested at a hospital. He was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday. It wasn't immediately known if he had a lawyer.
