SUMMARY OF CRASH:

 

On March 12, 2017 Killington Police Department and Vermont State Police responded to a serious injury crash on Killington Road at intersection of Schoolhouse Road in the town of Killington. The preliminary investigation shows that a Volkswagen sedan and the Toyota truck collided head on.  The at fault operator has not yet been determined.  The operators, Rianna  Montville, 25 of Vermont and, Christopher Sincavage, 45 of Pennsylvania as well as, Sincavage's passenger Lawrence Gadaleta were transported to Rutland Regional Medical Center for serious non-life threatening injuries.  Monteville and Sincavage were treated at Rutland Regional and were later released.  Gadaleta was transported to the University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington for further care. 

 

Throughout interactions with Law Enforcement both operators showed signs of impairment and were screened for DUI.  Both operators refused preliminary breath tests.  Monteville consented to providing a sample of her blood as evidence which was collected.  Sincavage refused consent and because of the severity of the accident, a search warrant was applied for, and granted for an evidentiary sample of Sincavage's blood.  Both evidentiary blood samples were sent to the Vermont Forensic Laboratory to be processed.

 

This crash is still under investigation, anyone with information about the crash is asked to contact Chief Montgomery at the Killington Police Department.

 

Vermont State Police and the Killington Police Department would like to thank, Killington Volunteer Fire Department, Rutland Regional Ambulance Services and Rutland Regional Medical center with their tremendous assistance with both the scene safety and medical care.
