Nashua man charged after crashing ATV into truck in Pelham, leaving the scene

PELHAM — A Nashua man who allegedly caused an accident while on his all-terrain vehicle and then left the scene of the crash was charged Saturday by Pelham police with reckless operation and operating an ATV on a road.

Police said Peter Hahn, 38, drove his Kawasaki 750 at a high rate of speed onto Bush Hill Road about 11:30 a.m. Saturday into the path of a plow-equipped truck driven by Russell Vigeant, 49, Hudson.

Hahn provided his information to Vigeant, but left before police arrived because "he did not want to be arrested," police said in a release.

Police said they followed fluid that was leaking from Hahn's ATV and found him trying to hide the vehicle, which had been significantly damaged in the crash.

Hahn is scheduled to be arraigned Feb. 25 in Salem District Court.
