SUMMARY OF CRASH:

 

On February 22, 2020, at approximately 1830 hours, Troopers with the Vermont

State Police were dispatched to Lake Champlain in the area of Larrabees Point

for the report of an ATV incident. Further investigation revealed that the

operator Joshua Stevens (24) of Mendon, VT had been operating his ATV on frozen

Lake Champlain, which is also a public highway under state law at approximately

1745 hours. For an unknown reason, Stevens lost control of the ATV and it came to a position of rest on its side. Stevens became ejected from the vehicle and came to rest ahead of it. While speaking with Stevens several signs of alcohol impairment were observed.

 

 

Stevens was transported to the University of Vermont Porter Medical Center for

suspicion of minor injuries. Stevens was ultimately issued a criminal citation

to appear before the Addison Superior Court Criminal Division to answer the

charge of "Operating under the influence of alcohol or other substance," a

violation of Title 23 VSA 1201.
