PETERBOROUGH, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire state police say a man was charged with aggravating driving while intoxicated and airlifted to a Massachusetts hospital with possible life-threatening injuries after a three-car accident in Peterborough.

Police say 54-yaer-old Leonard Gonthier of Jaffrey swerved into the oncoming lane of Route 202 near the Peterborough-Jaffrey line and side-swiped one vehicle before crashing head-on into another car just after 7 p.m. Saturday.

Authorities say the driver and passenger of the first vehicle Gonthier struck - 19-year-old Cameron Vetter and 18-year-old Karlee Daug, both of Rindge - were treated for injuries and released from Monadnock Community Hospital. The driver of the second vehicle - 32-year-old Reed Leger of Merrimack - was also treated and released.

It was not immediately known whether Gonthier has a lawyer.
