ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police responded to several traffic crashes last week. The only one reported locally that involved more than one car occurred on Monday when troopers went to the scene of a two-car crash on Route 116 in Starksboro.
VERGENNES — Vergennes police dealt with three one-car accidents during Sunday’s major snowstorm, all between midnight and about 8 a.m.
First, city police responded on behalf of Vermont State Police to a car reported to be off Monkton Road in Ferrisburgh, and called a wrecker to help out.
Later that morning, police went to a Main Street accident in which a car struck a utility pole. The operator told police he was forced off the road by a car coming from the other direction.
