Speed a factor in Milford fatal

MILFORD – Police say speed was a factor in the Aug. 21 accident that killed the son of a former Amherst state representative.

Nathanial Dokmo, 38, was driving west on Joslin Road on Friday around 7 p.m. when his 2003 Nissen crashed into a stone wall and then a utility pole, breaking it in half.

Dokmo was pronounced dead at the scene. Milford Police Capt. Craig Frye said he was the only occupant and the car was speeding.

Joslin Road between Route 13 North and Jennison Road was closed by the Milford Department of Public Works while crews worked through the night to repair the utility pole.

Dokmo’s obituary describes him as a locally renowned golfer who lead Bishop Guertin’s team when he was in high school.

A graduate of the University of New Hampshire, he worked in construction and home design with Steve Desmarais Construction had volunteered his time designing the new addition to the Share Outreach building.

He was the son of Cynthia Dokmo, a former Republican member of the New Hampshire House of Representatives who represented the Hillsborough 6 District from 1994 to 2010. She has also been a school board member and worked as an attorney for the firm Dresher & Dokmo.

Anyone having information related to the accident is asked to contact Sgt. Olivia Siekman at the Milford Police Department at 249-0630.
