DAMAGE TO VEHICLE: Moderate-Heavy damage on the entire left side, front tire, and front right side.

 

INJURIES

Jenny Yang (21) of Starksboro, VT (operator and sole occupant of the vehicle)… was wearing a seatbelt, has what appears to be minor injury to her left shoulder and head.

 

HOSPITAL: UVM Medical Center

WEATHER: Sunny and clear.

ROAD COND: Dry, moderate traffic.

 

SUMMARY OF CRASH:

 

On April 29, 2016 at approximately 1:37pm Vermont State Police and Richmond Police responded to a single vehicle crash at Exit 11 on I-89 northbound in the Town of Richmond. Yang was driving her 2008 Toyota Corolla northbound on I-89. Preliminary investigation revealed Yang had just passed a vehicle when she suddenly lost control of her car and began to swerve back and forth on the roadway. She hit the guardrails on both sides of the road, before coming to rest in the left-hand lane by the Exit 11 northbound on-ramp. It is appears the crash was caused by the vehicle’s left-front tire blowing out.

 

I-89 northbound at Exit 11 was temporarily shut down while debris was removed from the roadway and the vehicle was loaded onto a wrecker. Yang was transported to UVM Medical Center by Richmond Rescue as a precaution, and is being evaluated for minor injuries.

SUMMARY OF INCIDENT: On April 28, 2016 at approximately 0830 hours, State Police

were notified of a suspicious incident that occurred on Carlstrom Road in the

Town of Bristol. School officials reported to the State Police that a 13 year

old female student had reported that a man had approached her at her bus stop

and asked her if she wanted a ride to school.

 

State Police later interviewed the student, who advised she had been standing at

her bus stop when she saw a dark blue sedan, possibly a Honda, travelling down

Carlstrom Road at a slow rate of speed. The vehicle was being operated by an

older white male with white hair, a white beard, and a square chin. Additionally

the male was wearing what appeared to be a red & green baseball cap. The student

stated that the male offered her a ride to school to which she declined. The

student stated that her bus subsequently came around the corner and the male

rolled up his window and continued down the road and appeared to turn onto Lower

Notch Road. The student stated that she did not recognize the male or the

vehicle in question.

 

Vermont State Police are seeking information from anyone who has information on

the owner/operator or passengers of this vehicle.  Call 388-4919 with any
