Woman follows accused drunk driver 20 miles after crash

Posted: Updated:
HINGHAM, Mass. (WHDH) - A Hull man is accused of driving under the influence and crashing into a woman’s car then driving for another 20 miles.

Police say George Beale, 51, of Hull was driving through Dedham on Route 128 when he sideswiped a woman’s car.

The woman called police while she followed him through three towns.

“She followed behind him the whole way. Approximately 20 miles from Dedham, to in front of the court house where he was pulled over by Hingham police,” Dearth said.

It happened just after midnight on Sunday.  Police say Beale failed the Breathalyzer and is now charged with his second offense of drunk driving.  

No one was injured and both cars only had minor damage, but police say it could have been worse.

“Any impaired driver certainly is a danger, in this case he did sideswipe her vehicle,” Dearth said.

Beale was released on his own recognizance and is due back in court in June.
