SUMMARY OF CRASH:

On June 22, 2016 at approximately 1818 hours, Vermont State Police responded to 2741 Burr Pond Road in Sudbury for a report of a two car motor vehicle crash.  

 

Upon arriving on scene, Vehicle #1 was halfway off the road,  in the eastbound lane, and blocking traffic. Vehicle #2 was facing east on the shoulder of the westbound lane.   Both Operators advised they were uninjured, however neither vehicle was operable.


Operator #1, identified as Sophia Bloomer (16), was traveling west and crossed the center line.  While attempting to regain her lane she was impacted, in the eastbound lane, by Operator #2, identified as Brittany Pierce (23), who was traveling east.  The impact caused Bloomer to spin and go off the roadway, and Pierce to travel across the roadway and go off the highway.

 

The reason for this crash is Operator #1 crossed the center line.  The lack of injuries was partially attributed to proper seat belt use
