SUMMARY OF CRASH:

On 08/11/16 at approximately 0630 hours, VSP Westminster received a report of a single vehicle crash on Stickney Brook Road in Dummerston. Upon the arrival of Troopers, it was determined that a 1999 Jeep operated by Mosher was traveling eastbound on Stickney Brook Road had gone off the roadway and struck a tree. Mosher reported to Troopers that he swerved to avoid a deer that had entered the roadway. Mosher reported that his evasive driving action to avoid the deer caused him to lose control and go off the roadway. During the investigation at the scene, evidence suggested that Mosher was traveling too fast on the bumpy (washboard) roadway which caused him to lose control, fishtail side to side and then go off the roadway and strike a tree. Mosher’s vehicle was towed from the scene.
