Vermont State Police Log: Troopers respond to accidents
ADDISON COUNTY — It was a quiet holiday week for Vermont State Police working out of the New Haven barracks; they reported only three incidents between Dec. 22 and Dec. 28.
The most noteworthy was the armed robbery of the Shoreham Service Center, in which a lone man came into the Route 22A gas station at around 8:40 p.m. on Sunday the 28th brandishing a handgun and demanding money. The suspect — described as a male approximately 5 foot, 6 inches or 5 foot, 7 inches with an average build, wearing black pants, a black hoodie with the hood up, black gloves, and a black ski mask — fled on foot. See a full story in the A section of today’s edition.
Also last week, on Dec. 22, at approximately 7 p.m. a trooper responded to a reported vehicle off the roadway near the intersection of Stoney Hill Road and Lovers Lane in Bristol. Trooper Young tested the breath of the car’s driver, identified as 68-year-old Julia C. King of Bristol, and said it showed her blood alcohol content was 0.196 percent; the legal limit for driving is 0.08 percent. The trooper took King into custody and transported her to the New Haven barracks where she was cited for driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and released.
Separately, Trooper Armstrong responded to a Dec. 26 report of a single-vehicle collision involving two parked trailers on Route 22A in Bridport. She reported that Christopher Mungo, 30, of Boonton, N.Y., was driving a black Chevy Silverado pickup when at around 11:42 a.m. he started to pass several cars when an unrelated vehicle attempted to turn left.
To avoid a collision, Mungo drove off the left side of the road and struck the parked trailers. Both he and his wife, Stephanie Zavecz, were extracted from the vehicle and transported to Burlington by way of Middlebury Regional EMS. They had both been discharged from the hospital by Monday afternoon.
The Silverado was judged to be totaled. There is no criminal action being pursued.
