Two injured in Weybridge crash
WEYBRIDGE — Two young men were seriously injured on Thursday, Nov. 6, in an accident on Weybridge Road that Vermont State Police are tentatively attributing to distracted driving.
Police were called to the scene at around 11 a.m., where they spoke with the driver, Tyler Bougor, 26, of Middlebury. Police learned that Bougor had been travelling down Weybridge Road with his cousin, 17-year-old Caleb Wright of Hinesburg, when he allegedly looked down at his phone and then lost control of his Subaru Imprezza. Police said the vehicle veered off the road and overturned several times. Bougor and Wright were both ejected from the vehicle, according to authorities.
Bougor was taken to Porter Hospital for treatment of a broken shoulder, broken ribs, and a partially collapsed lung.
Wright was taken to Fletcher Allen Healthcare for treatment of broken femurs in both legs.
Police do not believe that alcohol or drugs were a factor in the collision.
Bougor’s vehicle was totaled in the crash.
