DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire police say a motorist who presented herself as a good Samaritan who drove an injured pedestrian to the hospital is the same person who caused the injuries.

Durham police say 38-year-old Michelle Blain of Barrington drove an injured University of New Hampshire student to a hospital Thursday night and explained that she’d happened upon the injured pedestrian.

Officers say she was intoxicated, there was damage to her vehicle and her story didn’t add up. She was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated, negligent driving and conduct after an accident.

It was unclear if she’d hired a lawyer.

The student, 22-year-old Hieu Nguyen of Plymouth, Mass., was treated and released. He told police he had no memory of the episode.
