Rochester rollover sends one man to the hospital, later charged with DWI
ROCHESTER - An rollover accident on Highland Street outside the Dunkin Donuts injured one man who was subsequently charged with driving while intoxicated.
The accident involved two vehicles but the other driver was not injured. Police say Daniel Boucher, 28, of Lebanon, Maine, was heading west on Highland Street. The other driver, Rodney Champagne of Saco, Maine was in the left-turn lane for Dunkin Donuts when Boucher tried to pass him on the right and hit the rear passenger side of the car.
Boucher then lost control of his car and ended up rolling onto one side. When rescuers arrived, he was complaining of head pain and was taken to Frisbie Memorial Hospital.
Police learned he had been drinking and later charged him at the hospital with driving while intoxicated. He was freed on $1,500 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on Jan. 25 in Rochester District Court.
