SUMMARY OF CRASH:

 

On 06-23-2016 at approximately 1920 hours the Vermont State Police responded to

a report of a single vehicle crash on Dorset Hill Road, located in the Town of

Dorset with unknown injuries. Upon arrival on scene, the operator, Kevin J.

Sprague (66) of Dorset VT, had to be extracted from the vehicle by Manchester

Rescue and Dorset Fire. Sprague was subsequently flown to Albany Medical Center

for possible head and internal injuries. It was determined Sprague was

travelling south on Dorset Hill Road and lost control of his vehicle. Sprague

struck a tree while sliding down the road. The impact caused his vehicle to

leave the roadway and strike another tree down a small embankment. Sprague's

vehicle sustained substantial damage as a result of the crash. Criminal charges

are pending as a result of the incident.

 

********Alcohol is a suspected contributing factor, but is pending further investigation to determine  whether it was played significant influence in the crash.********
