PRESS RELEASE
Vermont State Police Holiday Traffic Safety Enforcement

Williston - 05/27/2015 - The Vermont State Police participated in the national "Click It or Ticket it" campaign; as well as Operation C.A.R.E. (Combined Accident Reduction Effort) over the Memorial holiday weekend from Friday May 22 until Monday May 25, 2015

Sadly, there were three (3) fatalities on Vermont roadways this past holiday weekend. There have been fourteen (14) total fatalities in Vermont this year to date.
42% of this year's fatalities have either been unbelted or improperly restrained.

The Vermont State Police responded to; five (5) impaired related crashes, thirty-three (33) total crashes, twelve (12) DUI arrests, three hundred and eighty-nine (389) speeding tickets and assisted over forty-two (42) motorists.

The "Click it or Ticket it" enforcement campaign will end on June 1, 2015.

The national Holiday Click It or Ticket campaign, sponsored by Vermont's Governor's Highway Safety Program, is an effort to encourage safe travel, for every trip. GHSP awards federal highway safety grant funds to local, state and not-for-profit agencies for projects to improve highway safety and reduce deaths and serious injuries due to crashes. The GHSP also works closely within a network of state and local agencies, non-profit organizations and private-sector partners to deliver quality traffic safety projects, services, and information across the state.

Operation CARE is a national campaign by state police agencies across the country that have joined together in the endeavor of reducing human suffering on our highways, particularly during the national holidays. Formed as a multi-jurisdictional program, Operation CARE is committed to the patrol, enforcement, and activity planning for the purpose of committed to the goal of accident reduction. Since 1977 several organizations have joined with Operation CARE in a combined effort to deter the three key causes of highway fatalities: speeding, impaired driving and failure to use occupant restraints.

VICTIM: Michelle David
AGE: 29
CITY, STATE OF RESIDENCE: Hogansburg, NY

SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:

On May 26, 2015 at approximately 2015 hours, a Trooper from the St. Albans barracks was approaching the Sheldon Road intersection from Fisher Pond Road and observed a motorcycle passing a line of stopped vehicles at the Sheldon Road traffic signal. The motorcycle operator, later identified as Kevin Miller, continued through the red traffic signal at the intersection and began traveling east on Rt. 105/Sheldon. Upon clearing the intersection the Trooper activated his lights and siren in an effort to catch up to the motorcycle and initiate a motor vehicle stop. Miller was forced to slow down due to traffic in front of him, thereby allowing the Trooper to catch up to him. Upon realizing there was a cruiser behind him, Miller again accelerated to a high rate of speed and passed several more vehicles. The Trooper quickly lost sight of Miller due to his speed and ceased his efforts to stop the motorcycle. Approximately three minutes later the Trooper was flagged down by another motorist and told that they had witnessed Miller crash at the intersection of Rt. 105 and Pond Road.

The crash investigation revealed that the motorcycle Miller was operating had been reported as stolen to the St. Albans Police Department at approximately 0900 hours this day. The theft of the motorcycle remains under investigation.

Miller was not seriously injured in the crash, but his passenger, Michelle David, suffered numerous bone fractures and was hospitalized.

Miller was lodged at the Northwest State Correctional Facility in lieu of $2,500.00 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on May 27, 2015 at 1100 hours.
