SUMMARY OF CRASH: On 9/19/2019, at approximately 1849 hours, Vermont Troopers

responded to a single vehicle crash on East Darling Hill Road in the town of

Burke, VT. Through investigation it was learned the operator, Philippe Harrigan

(24) was travelling east on East Darling Hill Road when he failed to properly

navigate a curve causing him to leave the roadway and strike a tree before striking a

house. The house received minor, non-compromising damage and no one was inside

the house at  the time of the crash. The vehicle was totaled as a result of the crash.

Driver inattention appears to be a factor. Ace's Towing responded to remove the vehicle.

Harrigan was issued a VCVC for 23 VSA 1031, Driving to the Right. No injuries were reported

in the crash.
