SUMMARY OF CRASH:

On 11-04-16 at approximately 3:50 pm, the Vermont State Police responded to a crash on Interstate 91 near the construction zone between Exit 2 & 3 in the town of Brattleboro.  Upon arrival, it was determined that three vehicles were involved.  All three vehicles were traveling north on I-91 and due to heavy traffic, the last vehicle in the series of the three vehicles rear ended the vehicle ahead of it.  The chain reaction caused the second vehicle to be pushed forward and strike the lead vehicle.  All three operators reported minor back pain.  All three vehicles incurred damage.  Operator #1 or the last vehicle in the series of three was issued a ticket for following too closely.
