SUMMARY OF CRASH:

On December 2, 2016, Vermont State Police Troopers from the Rutland Station responded to a one vehicle traffic crash located on Vermont Route 100 at the South Hill Road intersection located in Pittsfield.

 

Through investigation it was determined Susan April was traveling north on VT Route 100, with her husband William April as a passenger.  Susan fell asleep while operating and as a result traveled off the east side of the road where the vehicle struck a utility pole.  As a result of the crash the utility pole was severed resulting in power wires to cross the road.

 

Susan and William were transported by ambulance to the Gifford Medical Center for medical evaluations.  It was later determined neither were injured.

 

Troopers were assisted on scene by the Pittsfield Volunteer Fired Department, Killington Volunteer Fire Department, White River Valley Ambulance Service  and Green Mountain Power.

 

Anyone who witnessed the crash is asked to contact the Vermont State Police, Rutland Station at 802-773-9101.
