SUMMARY OF CRASH:

On June 21, 2017, at approximately 1237 hours, Troopers from the Rutland Barracks were dispatched to a two-vehicle traffic crash located at the Shunpike Road and Russelville Road intersection, located in Mount Holly.

 

Investigation revealed vehicle #1, being operated by Joseph Boudreau was traveling west on Shunpike Road with the intention to make a right turn onto Russelville Road.  Vehicle #2, being operated by Joan Judge was traveling south on Russelville Road with the intention of turning left onto Shunpike Road. 

 

Vehicle #1 collided with vehicle #2 within the intersection.  Contributing factors include the width of the road and the inability for approaching vehicles to see one another.  Neither speed or incapacitated operation were associated with this crash.

 

Troopers were assisted on scene by the Mount Holly Volunteer Fire Department and Mount Holly Rescue.
