and was transported to Northwest Medical Center in St. Albans. Boissonneault's
passenger, Hannah Mason (17) was also transported to UVM Medical Center in
Burlington, VT for minor injures as well.

McRae's Towing and Interstate Auto assisted in removing the vehicle from the
side of the Interstate. Troopers had Interstate 89 shut down to one (1) lane for
approximately three (3) hours. Boissonneault will receive two (2) tickets in the
mail.
