DERRY, N.H. (AP) - A driver is being held on $250,000 bail, accused of negligent homicide and other charges in a hit-and-run collision with a motorcyclist in Derry, New Hampshire.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1EhiHAL) police said 46-year-old Michael Dixon of Derry was on Route 102 at about 6:30 p.m. Thursday. The motorcyclist, 59-year-old Kevin O’Donnell of Massachusetts, was taken to a hospital, where he died. O’Donnell’s 28-year-old daughter suffered non-life-threatening injuries to her neck and shoulder.

Police said they found the car abandoned in Londonderry, searched the area, and found Dixon.

Police said before the crash, Dixon drank eight, 16-ounce beers. He’s also charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated, and conduct after an accident with personal injury. He was appointed a public defender at his arraignment Friday and is scheduled for a hearing May 15.
