SUMMARY OF CRASH:

On 06-22-18 at approximately 1515 hours, VSP-Derby Barracks was notified of a crash involving an SUV and two motorcycles on VT Rte 105, in the Town of Jay, just east of the Richford Town Line.  VSP responded, along with an Orleans County Deputy Sheriff, Jay Fire and Mississquoi Ambulance.  Preliminary investigation indicated the operator of the SUV, was traveling westbound and went left of center.  As a result, the SUV sideswiped Poirier's motorcycle.  As the two motorcycles were traveling together, it caused both motorcycles to crash.  The two operators of the motorcycles were transported to area hospitals where they later both succumbed to the injuries they sustained during the crash.  The operator of the SUV was not injured.  Ray's Auto recovered all three vehicles from the crash location.  Speed nor alcohol appear to be a factor in this crash.  Upon final review of the Orleans County State's Attorney's office, Charles Kilby was issued a citation to appear in VT Superior Court - Criminal Division - Orleans County on 12-31-19 at 0830 hours to answer to the charges of (2) counts of Negligent Operation.
