SUMMARY OF CRASH: On November 15, 2016, at approximately 1815 hours, State Police were notified of a three-car motor vehicle collision that occurred on Bristol Road in the Town of Monkton. State Police arrived on scene and identified Operator#1 as Martin McLaughlin. McLaughlin advised that prior to the collision he was travelling northbound on Bristol Road at approximately 38 mph. McLaughlin advised that he did not remember much about the collision itself however. During the course of the conversation with McLaughlin a moderate odor of intoxicants was emanating from McLaughlin. McLaughlin submitted to conducting the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs). The results of the SFSTs confirmed the suspicion that McLaughlin was under the influence of an alcoholic beverage. As a result McLaughlin was placed under arrest for Driving Under the Influence and transported to the New Haven Barracks for processing.


State Police subsequently identified Operator#2 as Brady Hoffman. Hoffman was unable to be interviewed at the scene of the collision due to injuries sustained as a result of the collision. Hoffman was subsequently transported to UVM Medical Center for further treatment/evaluation.


State Police identified Operator#3 as Daniel Browdy. Browdy advised that prior to the collision, he was travelling southbound on Bristol Road at approximately 40mph. Browdy advised that McLaughlin's vehicle crossed the center line, striking the Volvo before it continued and struck his vehicle. All vehicles sustained moderate damages as a result of the collision.
