Man charged with DWI after crash

HUDSON – Police said Monday that although Nashua resident Harold Kobisky was not wearing a seat belt, he sustained only minor injuries when the truck he was driving veered off Ferry Street and shattered a utility pole around 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

But after he was treated at a Nashua hospital for the injuries, police charged the 54-year-old Kobisky with driving while intoxicated, according to the report.

Kobisky was booked on the misdemeanor charge, police added, and later released on personal recognizance bail pending arraignment, which is scheduled for March 27 in Nashua district court.

Police said officers, firefighters and medical personnel responded to the crash, and upon arrival found the 2015 Ford F150 up against the utility pole with heavy front-end damage.

Officers determined Kobisky was driving west on Ferry Street when the truck struck the pole, located on the westbound side of the road.

Kobisky was the lone occupant of the truck, police said.

Once he was taken to the hospital and the truck was towed away, representatives of Eversource Energy arrived on the scene to tend to the utility pole.

It is not clear if they were able to repair it or needed to replace it, but police said they closed Ferry Street between Buswell Street and Pleasant Avenue and detoured traffic for much of the evening.
