Rye woman faces multiple charges
PORTSMOUTH - A Rye woman faces a series of charges after the car she was driving hit a utility pole and drove through a fence Friday before she fled the scene, police said Saturday.
Katherine Supple, 26, of 1359 Ocean Boulevard, was charged with conduct after an accident, operating after suspension and breach of bail.
She was being held without bail due to the breach of bail charge and will be arraigned at 11 a.m. Monday in Portsmouth District Court.
She had been out on bail for charges out of the North Hampton and Thorton police departments for the motor-vehicle related offenses of operating after suspension and driving while intoxicated, respectively. Portsmouth police said there were no indication of impairment of Supple when she was arrested.
Supple allegedly swerved off Elwyn Road as she headed outbound toward Rye and struck a telephone pole before colliding through a wooden fence at 250 Elwyn Road and coming to final rest on the lawn of 264 Elwyn Road with the airbag deployed, police said.
Police tracked her through the damaged car's registration, which belonged to a Rye man.
No one was injured in the accident.
Police said the driver of a black pickup, who allegedly picked up Supple, may face charges.
The exact cause of the accident remains under investigation.
A section of Elwyn Road remained down to one lane of travel Saturday morning.
