MANCHESTER — A Manchester man was arrested on charges of driving under the influence after a crash that tipped over a horse trailer, police said Saturday.

State Troopers from Troop B barracks responded to a collision at 12:53 p.m. along Interstate 293 North near mile marker 1.2.

Adam Rollins-Ramirez, 23, allegedly struck a pickup truck towing a horse trailer, according to authorities.

The pickup, a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado driven by 56-year-old Gretchen Anderson of New Boston, was transporting one horse when Rollins-Ramirez’s 2005 Scion TC Coupe collided with it, causing the trailer to overturn and become disabled in the road.

With the help of the horse’s owner and witnesses, the animal was rescued from the trailer, suffering a leg laceration.

Neither driver was injured in the incident.

The New Hampshire State Police were assisted on the scene by the Manchester Fire Department and American Medical Response.

The ensuing investigation and vehicle removal led to lane closures for around 75 minutes.

Impairment is cited as the leading cause of the crash, and Rollins-Ramirez was taken into custody for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI).

His arraignment is set for July 15 at 8 a.m. in Manchester District Court.

Witnesses or those with information are urged to contact Trooper Thomas Skafidas at (603) 451-9765.
