ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police are reminding motorists to yield and slow down when approaching crash scenes after a vehicle passing through a crash scene in Rutland last week sideswiped the vehicle of an Addison County first responder while he was giving aid. The rubbernecker’s own car rolled over as a result of the inattentiveness.
At a around 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 19, state police responded to Route 7 just south of Carriage Run Road in the town of Rutland for a report of a vehicle off of the roadway.

In other action last week, Middlebury police:

“It only gets really hot in Vermont for about one week every summer.”
That’s what we tell ourselves here in order to make ourselves feel better about Vermont’s widespread lack of central air conditioning.
