PORTSMOUTH – Police say a one-car crash just after midnight Saturday was caused by an intoxicated driver who was going too fast.
The driver and passenger were both hospitalized when their car crashed at the entrance to the Cedars condominium complex at Lafayette Road and White Cedar Boulevard, according to Seacoastonline.
Police charged the driver, Jessica Young, 35, of Tamworth with felony driving while intoxicated and operating without a license.
Her passenger was identified as Tanya Holmes, 43, of White Cedar Boulevard, Portsmouth. Both women suffered serious injuries and were taken to Portsmouth Regional Hospital.
Police say witnesses said that Young's Honda CRV was heading south on Lafayette Road at a high rate of speed and tried to make a left-hand turn into the condominium complex when she lost control, drove over a concrete median and crashed into the trees.
Anyone with information about the crash is asked to contact officer Christopher Worthington at the Portsmouth Police Department at (603) 610-7578.
