CONWAY, NH – The Conway Town sidewalk Snowblower was severely damaged in an alleged drunk driving accident last week.

According to an email from Town Manager Tom Holmes on Thursday the town sidewalk plow was involved in an accident that put the machine out of commission for the foreseeable future.

In the Email Holmes said that while the Town searches for repair or replacement options they will be removing snow from the sidewalks with loaders and trucks. Holmes ended the email saying “The patience and understanding of the business community is requested and much appreciated.”

Conway Public Works Director Paul Degliangeli said in a voice Mail that they (the town) are waiting for the parts to fix the machine to arrive and that they cost around $10,000. Degliangeli added that they will be fixing the machine in their own garage.

The Conway Daily Sun reported that 48-year-old Nathaniel Sullivan, of Conway, crashed into the plow near Via Roma at around 1:30am Thursday. Sullivan faces charges alleging he was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident.

Holme’s told the Sun that the snowblower issue would be brought up at today’s selectmen’s meeting.
