SUMMARY OF CRASH:

 

On January 7, 2016 at approximately 1549 Troopers from the New Haven Barracks

responded to the intersection of US Route 7 and Old Hollow Road for the report

of a two car motor vehicle crash with injuries. Upon arrival and further

investigation it was determined that Kinzie (Vehicle #1) was traveling eastbound

on Stage Road, and had come to a stop at the intersection. Kinzie thought that

the roadway was free of traffic and proceeded through the intersection onto Old

Hollow Road. At approximately the same time Darling (Vehicle #2) was traveling

northbound just south of the intersection of Old Hollow Road collided with

Vehicle #1. Both operators were treated on scene and released.

 

Members of the Ferrisburgh Fire Department and Vergennes Area Rescue Squad

responded and assisted with the crash. This crash is currently still under

investigation. If anyone has any information regarding this crash they are asked

to call the Vermont State Police at 802-388-4919.
