SUMMARY OF CRASH:

 

On January 10, 2017 at approximately 0730 hours Troopers from the New Haven

Barracks responded to the intersection of VT Route 116 and Ireland Road for the

report of a one car motor vehicle crash with no reported injuries. Dispatch advised that

the operator, who was described as a male, had departed the crash scene on foot.

 

Upon arrival and further investigation it was determined that McCauley was driving

northbound on VT Route 116. McCauley lost control of the motor vehicle, left the

roadway on the east shoulder, overcorrected, and ultimately collided

with a guardrail on the west shoulder of the roadway.

 

During the conversation with McCauley several signs of impairment were observed;

McCauley subsequently was placed into custody and transported to the New Haven barracks for

processing.  

 

McCauley was later charged with Driving Under the Influence-Drugs, Leaving the Scene of an Accident and Unlawful

Mischief.  Anyone with information regarding this crash is asked to

contact the Vermont State Police at 802-388-4919.
