Vermont State Police Log: One hurt in three-vehicle crash

ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police are looking into the cause of a three-vehicle crash on Route 7 in Ferrisburgh.
At a little before 3 p.m. that Thursday, troopers responded to the report of the crash at the intersection of Route 7 and Monkton Road in Ferrisburgh.
Carissa Berry, 29, of Vergennes told police that her Nissan Rogue was stopped at the red light at the intersection. Police said she told them that she wasn’t paying attention and assumed the light had turned green and proceeded to travel east through the intersection. Berry’s Nissan collided with a northbound Dodge Caliber, struck a guardrail and became lodged under a tractor-trailer that was stopped on the other side of the intersection.
Eric Hoffman, 48, of Vergennes, who was driving the Dodge Caliber, told police that he was driving 50 mph when he saw Berry’s Nissan going through the intersection and he slammed on his brakes, but to no avail.
The tractor-trailer driver, Paul Connor, 66, of Middlebury, described to police what he saw.
Only Berry was taken to the hospital; she was treated at Porter Hospital for treatment of unreported injuries. Hoffman and Connor were both uninjured.
State police do not believe that alcohol or drugs played a factor in the collision.
Troopers were assisted on scene by the Vergennes fire and police departments and the Vergennes Area Rescue Squad.
Police said civil charges were pending completion of an investigation.

Police report that Raymond Sevigny, 72, of West Rutland was driving a 2009 Honda Civic southbound at approximately 55 mph when, for an undetermined reason, the car traveled left of center and into the opposing lane of travel, then left the traveled portion of the roadway. After leaving the roadway the vehicle became airborne for a short distance. After it hit the ground, the Civic overturned onto its roof, and then came to a position of uncontrolled rest in a culvert.
Drug and alcohol impairment do not appear to be contributing factors of this crash. Sevigny was transported to Porter Medical Center for further evaluation and treatment of a possible head injury.
