SUMMARY OF CRASH:

VSP Williston and Bolton Fire Dept. received a report of a single vehicle collision on I89 NB near MM 68 in the town of Bolton, VT.  Upon arriving at the scene, it was determined that Operator #1 (Wacek) was traveling NB on I89 in the passing (left) lane when his vehicle collided with a deer.

 

Significant damage was noted to the front end of Wacek's vehicle but he was able to come to a stop out of the way of traffic.  Wacek reported he was wearing his seatbelt and uninjured during the crash. 

 

Due to the intense impact to the deer, the NB travel (right) lane was merged over for a short period of time to allow emergency responders a safe avenue to remove the remains. No traffic delays were noted.
