SUMMARY OF CRASH:

 

On 7/21/17 at approximately 0215 hours, VSP-Derby Troopers were dispatched to a single-vehicle crash with injuries at the intersection of Hollow Rd and Cross Rd in the town of Barton.  Upon their arrival, the vehicle was found in contact with the dirt slope on the east side of Hollow Rd.  The 5 occupants of the vehicle were out of the vehicle and multiple injuries were observed.  The operator was identified as Dylan Holmes-Sanborn, who was found not to be in possession of a valid operator’s license, and also found to have been operating the vehicle without the owner’s consent.

 

A preliminary crash investigation revealed Holmes-Sanborn had been operating on Cross Rd at an imprudent speed, crossed the intersection of Cross Rd and Hollow Rd, and collided with the dirt slope.  Holmes-Sanborn, along with the 4 juvenile passengers, were transported to North Country Hospital by EMS.  The 4 passengers’ injuries are considered to be serious, and DHART air medical transport was requested.

 

Multiple Fire, EMS and tow services responded to the scene as well.

 

This incident remains under investigation and updates will be released as they develop.
