On 11/23/16 at approximately 5:18 pm the State Police received a call of a reported two car crash on VT Route 30 near VT Route 100 in Jamaica.  It was determined that the two vehicles involved were a 2013 Dodge Ram, operated by Rhonda Brown age 56 of Jamaica VT, and a 1994 Chevrolet Truck, operated by Martin Rojas age 33 of Jamaica, VT.  Investigation revealed that Brown was attempting to turn into the Rawsonville Marketplace, from the northbound lane when she stuck Rojas’ vehicle, who was traveling south. There were no injuries as a result of the crash, but both vehicles sustained damage to their front ends, causing them to become inoperable. Brown was found to have been at fault for the crash and was issued a VCVC. Both vehicles were removed by Scott Brooks Towing.
