SUMMARY OF CRASH:

On 08/06/2016 at approximately 1420 hours, members of the Vermont State Police Westminster came upon a crash on Interstate 91 in the area of mile marker 48/80 northbound in the Town of Weathersfield. During the roadside investigation it was determined that vehicle #2 operated by Gary was northbound in the travel lane at approximately 60 miles per hour. As Gary proceeded northbound, a Chevrolet Silverado pickup, gray in color, unknown registration entered his lane. Gary took evasive action to avoid colliding with the pickup truck. During the evasive action, Gary’s vehicle began to hydroplane on the wet roadway causing his vehicle to spin out of control. As a result of the loss of control, the passenger side of Gary’s vehicle struck the guardrail on the median side of the roadway. Gary was able to move his vehicle from the traveled portion of the roadway. The other vehicle involved in this crash did not stop and fled the area.
