SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:  On July 27, 2017 at approximately 1801 hours Vermont State Troopers were dispatched to a report of a truck versus bicycle collision in the area of 892 Rt. 109 in Waterville. The caller reported the vehicle involved had run the bicycle off the roadway and fled the scene. While responding, Troopers received a report of a second crash in the area which was described as a single-vehicle rollover. The vehicle in that incident was unoccupied and matched the description of the vehicle that had fled the scene of the initial (bicycle) incident.

 

The bicyclist, a 25 year old man from Northborough, MA, was transported to Copley Hospital for injuries sustained in the incident.  He was then transferred to the University of Vermont Medical Center, where he was treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

 

Troopers worked to identify the operator of the truck and determined that 45 year-old Michael Reagan of Eden, VT was the operator at the time of both incidences.  Reagan was taken into custody and transported to the Williston State Police Barracks for processing. He was then lodged at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility for lack of $5,000 bail.

 

If anyone witnessed this incident or has further information please contact Trooper Wagner.
