man injured in crash
Motorcyclist Ejected From Bike In Critical Condition
An Arkansas man was arrested in Manchester Saturday following an alleged drunken driving accident.
Police said Domenick Yezzi, 59, of North Little Rock, Ark., was driving north on Elm Street around 8:30 p.m. Saturday when he tried to make a U-turn. A motorcycle was traveling behind Yezzi at the time and slammed into his car. The accident was so severe, the motorcycle was left in a twisted pile of metal lodged into the car door.
The motorcyclist, Christopher Welcome, 26, of Goffstown, was ejected from the motorcycle, suffering serious, life-threatening injuries. He was transported to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, where he remains in critical condition.
Yezzi was given a sobriety test at the scene and arrested for Aggravated OUI. Police continue to investigate the crash.
