Finally, on Sunday, Oct. 30, at approximately 1:54 a.m. troopers from the Rutland barracks were dispatched to a motor vehicle crash with injuries on Post Road in Rutland. Upon arrival, police located a 2004 GMC Sierra off the north side of Post Road, against a tree. The truck sustained severe damage to the front bumper and rear passenger side.
Police said that Craig Bilodeau was driving the Sierra westbound on Post Road when he failed to navigate a shape curve, and went off the north side of the roadway. As a result of the crash, a passenger sustained a deep cut to his right eyebrow, and required transportation to Rutland Regional Medical Center for treatment.
While speaking with Bilodeau, police said he displayed several indicators of impairment. He provided a sample of his breath for a preliminary breath test. The test indicated his breath alcohol concentration was 0.111 percent; the legal limit for driving is 0.08.
Police took Bilodeau into custody for suspicion of driving under the influence and transported him to the state police barracks for processing. He was cited for driving under the influence and released to a sober party.
