HAMPTON, N.H. (AP) - A Massachusetts driver has been charged with striking three pedestrians in Hampton, New Hampshire.

Twenty-five-year-old Wayne Renard Jr. of Salem, Massachusetts, was arrested shortly after 1:30 Thursday morning.

Police say the pedestrians were taken to area hospitals with apparent minor injuries. Two were held overnight as a precaution and a third was released.

Police say the vehicle crashed through a line of trash barrels on Ashworth Avenue, struck the pedestrians and left the scene.

Renard was being held on $10,000 cash bail on charges of driving under the influence, felony conduct after an accident and having an open container in a vehicle. It was not immediately known if he was being represented by an attorney.
