MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Police have charged a New Hampshire man with driving under the influence of drugs after he allegedly shot up heroin before crashing into a parked tractor trailer.

Police say 33-year-old Christopher Langill, of Manchester, is accused of swerving into the oncoming lane on a Manchester street and striking the truck Wednesday afternoon. Langill and his passenger, 26-year-old Mark Wilson, suffered serious, but not life-threatening injuries. The driver of the truck, who was not inside the cab, wasn’t injured.

After the crash, Manchester traffic investigators determined Langill injected heroin shortly before hitting the truck.

Langill was charged at the hospital, where he is expected to remain for several days. He was released on $10,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court July 13.
