Motorcycle crashes into dump truck in Middlebury
MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police are investigating a motorcycle-versus-truck accident on Case Street on the evening of Monday, Aug. 28, that resulted in serious injuries to a man and woman who were riding the motorcycle.
Middlebury police Chief Tom Hanley said the crash occurred when a northbound motorcycle struck a northbound dump truck that was turning into a driveway at 4961 Case St., which is about halfway between Cobble Road and Mead Lane.
Hanley identified the motorcycle driver as George Thomas, 22, of Bristol, who sustained “significant injuries” and was taken to Porter Hospital. The passenger on the bike — Alyse Wanke, 21, of Leicester — was also seriously hurt and required hospitalization, according to Hanley.
The truck — which was towing a trailer bearing an excavator — was being driven by Matthew DeBisschop, who was unhurt, according to Hanley.
Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call Middlebury police at 388-3191.
