Four injured in Middlebury crash on Route 7

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police said four people were injured in a Tuesday morning, two-vehicle accident near Middlebury Beef Supply that closed Route 7 to traffic for more than five hours.
The police investigation reveals that a Nop Brothers Farm truck driven by Donald Mason, 58, of Middlebury, was traveling north on Route 7 when it collided with the driver’s side of an Addison County Transit Resources bus — operated by 59-year-old Cornwall resident Vaughn Berno — that was turning left onto Route 7 south. The truck pushed the ACTR bus off the west side of the roadway, coming to rest down a slight embankment, according to police. Sarah Banerji, age unknown at this time, of Middlebury was a passenger of the bus and became entrapped beneath the bus, police said.
Michael Ouelette, 53, of Fair Haven, was also riding in the bus at the time, according to authorities. All four people involved in the accident were taken to Porter Hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries, according to police. Ouellette was subsequently transferred to the University of Vermont Medical Center, police said.
Other agencies responding to the scene included Middlebury Regional EMS and the Middlebury Fire Department, according to police. A Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles enforcement team was also present and is assisting Middlebury police with the investigation.
