A former New Hampshire state lawmaker charged with trying to lure a 14-year-old girl into a sexual encounter has been accused of drunken driving following a three-car accident.

Former state Rep. Kyle Tasker, a 31-year-old Republican, resigned in March after his arrest on drug charges and a charge of trying to lure a minor for sex. He and his lawyer haven't commented.

Police took a report of a car swerving all over Route 125 in Rochester at about 5:40 p.m. Tuesday, then came upon the accident farther south.

Police say the driver, identified as Tasker, struck a car stopped at a traffic signal that was pushed into the rear of another stopped car. All three drivers refused medical treatment.

Tasker was released on bail and is scheduled for arraignment on Nov. 14. A message was left for his lawyer.
