SUMMARY OF CRASH:

 

On December 25, 2016 at approximately 10:40 AM hours members of the Vermont State Police New Haven Barracks responded to a two car motor vehicle crash with

entrapment. Upon further investigation it was determined that Vehicle #2 was

traveling northbound on US Route 7 in North Ferrisburgh, at approximately the

same time Vehicle #1 was traveling westbound on Old Hollow Road. The operator of

Vehicle #1, Workman attempted to pass through the intersection of Old Hollow

Road and US Route 7. It was determined that Workman misjudged the spacing

distance between Vehicle #2 and other motorists. As a result Vehicle #2, driven

by Royer collided with the driver's side of Vehicle #1.

 

Workman was transported to the University of Vermont Medical Center for treatment. Royer and another passenger were treated and released on scene.

 

The Vermont State Police were assisted on scene by the Ferrisburgh Fire Department and Vergennes Rescue.

 

This investigation is still ongoing at this time, the Vermont State Police are asking anyone with information regarding the crash to contact the New Haven Barracks at 802-388-4919.
