A 35-year-old Plaistow, N.H., woman is facing drunken driving and other charges after New Hampshire State Police say she was driving 109 miles per hour early Thursday morning along Route 101.

Trista White was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated, reckless conduct, reckless driving and disobeying an officer. She was released on bail and is scheduled to be arraigned June 18, at Rockingham County Superior Court.

Trooper Peter Sankowich of the New Hampshire State Police, Troop-A first observed White at 12:29 a.m., Thursday, driving eastbound on Route 101. He said she passed him in a silver Subaru Forester moving at 93 miles-per-hour. By the time he caught up with White, she was traveling at 109 mph, near the I-95 overpass, according to a police statement.

White came to a stop near exit 13 in Hampton, but as Sankowich left his cruiser, he said, White fled and drove eastbound on Route 101. She later reversed direction at exit 10, after driving on the wrong side of Newfields Road in Exeter, and got back onto Route 101 eastbound. As the pursuit merged back onto Route 101, additional troopers were able to deploy stop sticks and deflate the front driver’s side tire of the suspect vehicle.
