SUMMARY OF CRASH: On November 24, 2016 at approximately 0908 hours Vermont State Police
Williston Troopers responded to a two vehicle collision on I89 in Richmond just north of Exit 11. Investigation
at the scene revealed that Shiloh Rousseau lost control of her 2010 Toyota Yaris attempting to pass and struck a Subaru
Forrester which was being operated by William Cove. Cove's Forrester was subsequently forced into a guardrail at the scene.
Both vehicles sustained moderate to severe contact damage. There were no injuries. Front summer tire tread depth on
Rousseau's vehicle was low and not adequate for the winter weather driving conditions.
Rousseau was issued a VCVC pursuant to Title 23 VSA Section 1081(a) speed restrictions for failing to maintain control
of her car. This violation carries a $220.00 fine and 4 points as it resulted from a collision.
