SUMMARY OF CRASH:
On August 8, 2016 at approximately 1946, Vermont State Police responded to the area of US Rt. 7 and VT 103 in Clarendon for a report of a two vehicle crash.

A broken down Schwan’s truck was in the turning lane on U.S. Rt. 7 which caused Phillips to travel to the right most southbound lane.

As Operator #1 began to make his turn across both southbound lanes, Vehicle #2 was struck while traveling south.
The Passenger of vehicle #2 was transported to Rutland Regional Medical Center for evaluation.
No other injuries were reported at the scene.
