On 08-13-18 at approximately 0742 hours, Vermont State Police - Derby Barracks was notified of a single vehicle crash that took place on Interstate 91 NB at MM 153.55 in the Town of Glover.  We were advised that there were no injuries and no leaking fluids.  I arrived and met with the operator, Williams, who advised that he had been traveling northbound in the travel lane, when a silver Chevrolet Silverado pick-up truck, silver in color, went to pass him in the passing lane.  Williams advised that the truck swerved toward him, causing him to lose control of his vehicle.  According to Williams, the pick-up truck sped away without stopping.  Williams described the truck as having a blue bumper sticker with white lettering on the driver side bumper.  He believed it was a VT registration.  He also reported that it was a male operating the truck.  Anyone with any information regarding this pick-up truck is asked to contact VSP-Derby Barracks, Corporal Amy LeClair, at 802-334-8881.
