SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:

 

On 10/30/16, at approximately 0154 hours, Troopers from the Vermont State Police Rutland Barracks were dispatched to a motor vehicle crash with injury, on Post Road in the Town of Rutland.  Upon arrival, Troopers located a 2004 GMC Sierra off the north side of Post Road, against a tree.  The truck sustained severe damage to the front bumper area and rear passenger side.     

 

Investigation revealed Craig Bilodeau was operating his 2004 GMC Sierra westbound on Post Road, when he failed to navigate a shape curve, and went off the north side of the roadway.  As a result of the crash, passenger Alexander Bellone sustained a deep laceration to his right eyebrow area, and required transportation to Rutland Regional Medical Center for treatment.  While speaking with Bilodeau, he displayed several indicators of impairment.  Bilodeau provided a sample of his breath for a preliminary breath test, that indicated his breath alcohol concentration was 0.111%. Bilodeau was subsequently taken into custody for suspicion of DUI and transported to the State Police Barracks in Rutland for processing.  After processing, Bilodeau was issued  a citation to appear in Rutland Superior Court Criminal Division at a later date and released to a sober party.
