Leicester woman dies from crash injuries
SALISBURY — A Leicester woman has died from injuries she sustained in a single-car crash located at the intersection Creek Road and Dewey Road in Salisbury on Sept. 13.
Vermont State Police on Tuesday, Sept. 19, confirmed Danielle Austin, 39, had died after having sustained life threatening injuries in the crash.
It was at around midnight on Sept. 13 that state police responded to a single-car collision involving a 2013 Chevrolet EQX. Their ensuing investigation revealed Austin had been driving west on West Salisbury Road and lost control of her vehicle and collided with a utility pole, according to police.
Evidence at the scene showed Austin was not wearing her seatbelt, according to police, who added they believed alcohol was a “likely a contributing factor to this collision.”
Austin was initially taken to Porter Medical Hospital for treatment for her injuries, then was airlifted to University of Vermont Medical Center, where she was listed as being in critical condition prior to her death.
