SUMMARY OF CRASH:

On July 5, 2020, at approximately 1141 hours, Troopers from the Vermont State Police Rutland Barracks were notified of a single vehicle crash near Herrick Road in Benson, Vermont.

Police met with the operator at the Maple Fields in Fair Haven, Vermont after citizens found the operator, later identified as Jacob Winslow (20), disoriented and walking in the roadway some distance from the crash.  Winslow denied medical treatment and State Police transported Winslow back to his vehicle located on Temple Road in Benson, Vermont where the vehicle was found having impacted a tree.

Through interaction with Winslow and investigation at the scene, enough information was gathered to believe Winslow was impaired.  Winslow was subsequently screened, displayed further signs of impairment, and was taken into custody for suspicion of Driving Under the Influence. 

 

The Vermont State Police were assisted by Fair Haven Police Department, Carrara’s Towing and Recovery, and Vermont State Fish and Wildlife.
