Vermont State Police Log: Accidents on roads keep troopers busy
ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police last week responded to a couple of one-car crashes that were attributed to winter road conditions.
On March 5 at 6:14 p.m. troopers were called to a one-car crash on Route 125 in Hancock. Police said a driver of a pickup truck lost control when he went over a frost heave at 40-45 mph. The truck slid on some ice, struck a snow bank and overturned.
Francis Goodwin, 57, of Graysville was taken to Gifford Medical Center to be evaluated for neck pain.
The next morning at 8:42 a.m., state police went to a one-car rollover crash in Bridport, where they observed snow drifts on Crown Point Road. Police said that Katrina J. Ploof, 24, of Bridport lost control of the 2011 Toyota Rav-4 she was driving on Crown Point Road, and the car rolled multiple times and came to rest on its passenger side.
Troopers and the Bridport Fire Department extricated Ploof from the car. Police said she sustained minor, non-incapacitating injuries, and the vehicle was totaled.
Police said speed was a contributing a factor and they issued Ploof a written warning.
In other recent activity, state police:
• On March 4 at 4:30 p.m. responded to a two-car crash on Route 22A in Shoreham. Police said the at-fault driver left the scene, and they later identified her as Ingrid Gevry, 34, of Shoreham and cited her for leaving the scene of an accident.
• On March 5 at 7:50 p.m. cited Michael Dorsey, 23, of Cornwall for careless and negligent driving as a result of a one-vehicle accident on Route 30 in Cornwall.
• On March 6 at approximately 4:50 p.m. were notified of an assault, which occurred in New Haven. Police cited Tammy Delphia, 49, of New Haven for simple assault and disorderly conduct.
• On March 9 at 10:30 p.m. responded to a Mountain Street residence in Bristol for a welfare check. Investigation led police to cite Brian Haines, 27, of Bristol for domestic assault, violation of conditions of release and driving under the influence.
• On March 10 at 8:07 a.m. responded to a two-car collision on Burpee Road in Bristol. Police said that Robert D. Larose, 29, of Middlebury stopped his 2010 Ford Fuzion behind a line of cars that had all stopped for a school bus picking up children. A 2011 Toyota 4-Runner driven by Monica S. Carter, 42, of Bristol approached from behind; police said Carter tried to stop but couldn’t and collided with the rear end of Larose’s Fuzion. Both vehicles exhibited very minor contact damage, and Larose was transported to Porter Hospital for precautionary reasons. Troopers said speed and impairment were not contributing factors, but that distraction on Carter’s part was a contributing factor. They mailed her a written warning for following too closely.
