Police say that 65-year old Henry Carnevale of Newbury was arrested at his residence Tuesday afternoon for Reckless Conduct and Conduct After an Accident. He had fled the scene of a road rage incident on I-89 near mile marker 48 around 7:30 AM earlier that day.
New Hampshire State Police and local authorities responded to the scene and identified that a 2014 white Volkswagen Jetta was travelling north while a 2003 white Ford Expedition was following closely behind. The Ford passed the Volkswagen and while it merged back in front of the Volkswagen, the driver applied the brakes, causing the vehicles to impact.
The Volkswagen lost control and crashed, injuring both the driver and a child passenger. The driver, later identified as Carnevale, fled the scene and was found at his Newbury residence.
Carnevale was held behind bars overnight on $5,000 cash bail and was arraigned in Newport Circuit Court Wednesday. He was released on $25,000 personal recognizance bail.
