A man who crashed his car overnight in Pelham, New Hampshire, is now facing DUI charges.
Pelham police say Edward Nassif, of Amesbury, Massachusetts, was driving on Mammoth Road just before 2 a.m. Saturday when he struck a guardrail and crashed near the Lt. Elmer G. Raymond Athletic Fields.
An officer came across the single-vehicle crash and saw an Audi TT with front-end damage that was stuck off the southbound lane near the entrance to the athletic fields.
After investigating what happened, the officer determined that Nassif was impaired. The 30-year-old was arrested and charged with driving under the influence.
