SUMMARY OF CRASH:

 

On the above date the Vermont State Police responded to a reported single vehicle crash that was blocking the left lane of travel.  The operator involved, BACHE, said she was uninjured, but that her vehicle was disabled due to damage sustained in the crash.  DMV Inspectors responded to the scene and assisted with traffic control until troopers arrived.  Bache indicated she was traveling north bound at a speed of 65 to 70 miles per hour and lost control on snow and ice.  Bache said her vehicle entered a skid and she was unable to regain control before her vehicle struck the guardrails on the median side of the highway.  Bache’s vehicle had to be towed from the scene due to damage.  Road surface conditions and lane control were identified as being factors in this crash.

 

No court action is anticipated.
