On Saturday, November 12, 2016 at approximately 1956 hours, members of the Vermont State Police were notified of a single vehicle crash on VT RT 103 in the Town of Mt. Holly. Troopers from the Rutland Barracks responded and located the crash approximately one half-mile west of Shunpike Road.

 

Preliminary investigation revealed that Jill L. Prater was operating her vehicle, traveling west on VT RT 103, at approximately 40 mph. While traveling west, Prater attempted unsuccessfully to maneuver her vehicle around a deer that had jumped out in front of her vehicle. The vehicle sustained significant contact damage to the front end. It was removed from the roadway by a towing company, as it was not able to be driven from the scene under its own power.
