Middlebury Police Log: Police rescue teen stuck in Chipman Hill tower

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police assisted local firefighters at around 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 13, in rescuing a youth who had climbed the radio tower on Chipman Hill and couldn’t get back down.
Police took the youth to Porter Medical Center to meet with representatives of the Counseling Service of Addison County.
In other action last week, Middlebury police:
•  Assisted at the scene of a three-vehicle crash on Case Street on May 7 involving two Middlebury police cruisers and a Dodge Durango truck. As previously reported by the Independent, the two cruisers were headed to a reported domestic dispute on Mead Lane when a southbound Durango driven by 40-year-old Patrick Chaffee of East Middlebury struck the rear driver’s side of the lead police car, driven by Officer Connor Sousa. The truck then went sideways into the northbound lane and was struck by the following police car, driven by Officer Kevin Emilio. Emilio and Chaffee were taken to Porter Hospital; Emilio had surgery on his leg and is still recovering from injuries sustained in the crash, including a broken ankle.
