ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police are investigating a fiery, one-car crash that occurred on the afternoon of Oct. 14 in Monkton.
Police report that Trevor Howard, 26, of Ferrisburgh was driving a 2014 Nissan Versa northbound on Monkton Road at around 2:45 p.m. that day when he experienced a medical event that caused him to drive off the road and hit a tree near the intersection with Parks Hurlburt Road. The crash resulted in the vehicle catching fire.
MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police cited Muriel Hoy, 73, of Legrange, Maine, for domestic assault, following an incident at a Ledgewood Court residence on Oct. 15.
In other action last week, Middlebury police:
• Assisted state police with a reported in-progress burglary at an occupied home in Cornwall on Oct. 13.
• Investigated a report of a vehicle leaving the scene of an accident on Court Street on Oct. 13.
This is a ghost story, except that the ghosts were never living; they were things that humans built assuming they'd endure: roads, houses, towns.
