SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:
On March 13, 2017, at approximately 0540 hrs, Vermont State Police responded to a reported single vehicle crash off VT RT 30 near the Pawlet town line.
Investigation revealed that Kristopher Prevost was driving southbound on VT RT 30 in Wells when his Ford F-150 lost traction on the roadway due to exiting a curve too fast. Prevost’s truck subsequently crossed the center line and crashed off the eastern road edge. Prevost then left the scene prior to the arrival of first responders.
Prevost later arrived at the VSP Rutland barracks for an interview. While at the barracks, the investigating trooper detected an odor of intoxicants emanating from Prevost.
Prevost was subsequently issued a criminal citation to appear before a judge at the Superior Court of Vermont, Criminal Divisional in Rutland for the charge of Negligent Operation. He was also issued a notice of violation to contact the County Diversion’s Youth Substance Abuse Safety Program.
