SUMMARY OF CRASH:

 

On 07/25/2017 at approximately 1354 hrs, Troopers from the Vermont State Police

- New Haven Barracks responded to a single vehicle crash on Leland Rd,

Salisbury, VT.  Upon arrival, the operator, identified as Ricky Devoid was being

assisted by Middlebury Rescue and later transported to Porter Hospital for

evaluation. In addition the vehicle, a 1941 Dodge truck was observed off the

roadway, rolled onto its right side, facing north, adjacent to the southbound

lane of travel.

 

Preliminary investigation indicates that Devoid, along with his passenger, Megan

Lussier, were traveling south on Leland Rd.  Devoid lost control of the truck

when he traveled into the soft shoulder.  Devoid's vehicle traveled left of

center, left the roadway and ultimately overturned onto its right side.

 

Speed appears to be a contributing factor to this crash.

 

This investigation remains active.  Any witnesses to the crash are asked to

contact this Trooper and the Vermont State Police.
