As the summer months approach fast and the number of cars on our New England roadways begins to increase, it's critically important to remember that drinking and driving could change or even end someone's life.

Police all around the country are reminding drivers headed into the holiday weekend that even buzzed driving is drunk driving. Be safe and either don't go anywhere, or have a designated driver.

A New Hampshire man was taken into custody for allegedly driving a dump truck while under the influence.

According to an article published by WGME 13, the driver of the dump truck was working in the area of a construction zone on Sunday night around 11pm. That's when New Hampshire State Troopers say they received calls that the 49-year-old driver may be under the influence.

New Hampshire State Police responded to the scene and proceeded to take Michael Pellerin, 49 of Manchester, New Hampshire, into custody. He was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated after troopers say he appeared to be under the influence.

The construction project he was allegedly working at was reportedly taking place on Interstate 93 in Hooksett, New Hampshire.

Pellerin has since bailed out of jail as he awaits a preliminary court date.

This is a developing story that we will continue to keep updated as more information is made available to us in the coming days and weeks.

It's important to note in situations like this that all suspects are to be considered innocent until they have been proven guilty in a court of law.
