WINDHAM - A Massachusetts woman was arrested for drunken driving and multiple other charges on Sunday after leading police on a high-speed chase from Windham into Manchester.
The chase unfolded around 3:25 a.m. when a state trooper made the traffic stop due to lane control issues, and the subject vehicle sped away when he approached the driver's side door.
At least one other cruiser joined in the chase which didn't end till the chase vehicle, a 2018 Honda Accord, lost control in the area of Exit 8 in Manchester and struck a guardrail along the right side of the roadway, police said in a statement sent today.

She was transported to the Rockingham County Jail where she was held on the active warrants pending an arraignment.
