SUMMARY OF CRASH:

 

                On June 24, 2017 at 1439 hours, Troopers from the St. Albans barracks were dispatched to a car verse motorcycle at the intersection of Route 7 and the

89 southbound off ramp in the Town of Georgia, VT. There was a first responder on scene already tending to the operator of the motorcycle.

               

                Upon arrival to the scene, Trp. Filipek spoke with the operator of van, Bryan Stickney (29). Stickney stated he was attempting to make a left turn to

get onto Interstate 89 southbound and struck a motorcycle traveling northbound on Route 7. The operator of the motorcycle, Michael Peter (29) was transported to Northwestern Medical Center for minor injuries.

 

                Speed and alcohol do not appear to be a factor in this crash. St.  Pierre's removed the motorcycle from the intersection.
