Vermont State Police Log: Burlington man cited for DUI
ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police cited a Burlington man for driving under the influence on Route 7 in Ferrisburgh this past Saturday night.
Police report that on Oct. 21 at sometime after 10 p.m. a trooper pulled over a car driven by 59-year-old Daniel G. Delanty near Monkton Road after observing several driving violations. The trooper reported seeing signs of impairment in Delanty, so he screened him for DUI, took him to the Vergennes Police Department for processing and cited him for the offense. State police don’t provide a blood alcohol content test results when they cite drivers for DUI, but do include the information in court records that are released after arraignment.
State police also responded to two separate motor vehicle crashes recently; neither resulted in serious injuries.
First, on Oct. 18 at around a quarter to noon, troopers went to a car vs. dump truck collision on Richville Road in Shoreham. Police said a dump truck driven by David Hendee, 56, of Fair Haven was westbound on the road followed by a 2013 Subaru Crosstrek driven by Cheyenne Cormia of Florence. The truck stopped and the Subaru stopped behind it, then the truck backed up and struck the front of the Subaru.
No one was injured.
Police issued Hendee a ticket for unsafe backing.
The second crash was on Oct. 20 at around 10:45 a.m. State police said David Bearor, 68, of Bridport was driving a 1999 Freightliner tractor-trailer northbound on Basin Harbor Road near Town Line Road in Addison at approximately 35 mph. Bearor told police that he saw a southbound vehicle drifting into his lane. To avoid a collision, Bearor steered his vehicle further right catching the edge of the roadway, and, due to the weight of the tractor-trailer, he was unable to maintain control and subsequently overturned.
The driver of the other vehicle failed to stop.
Bearor’s vehicle was totaled, but he was uninjured.
Due to the crash, Basin Harbor Road was closed for several hours.
