Official: Bar Did Not Overserve Men Who Died In Crash

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire Liquor Commission official says a bar did not overserve four men who later died in a Manchester car crash.

The New Hampshire Union Leader reports Eddie Edwards, chief of liquor enforcement, said that so far there’s no reason to believe the Black Brimmer American Bar & Grill played a role in the crash. He said two more witnesses need to be interviewed.

Edwards said the men were at the Brimmer for about three hours. He said investigators interviewed 21 witnesses and none indicated any of them was drunk.

The car was found Sept. 12 off Interstate 293, 37 hours after they were last spotted.

The victims were 24-year-old Jeffrey Levesque and Alex DeFreitas of Londonderry; 25-year-old Chase Abreu of Pelham; and 25-year-old Jesse Pena of Lowell, Mass.
