Vermont State Police: Troopers locate driver sought in crash case

ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police working out of the New Haven barracks issued two full press releases between Sept. 11 and 18.
In the first incident, troopers on Sept. 16 at 6:45 p.m. responded to a report of a two-vehicle crash on Peddler Bridge Road near Wagon Wheel Road in Ripton. Lyle Webb, 52, of Ripton told troopers that he was driving a 2003 Dodge truck that was in a crash with a vehicle police identified as a 2003 Ford Escape. Webb said the other driver left the scene after the crash without identifying himself.
Based on the information provided by Webb and troopers at the scene, Bristol Police Officer Randy Crowe was able to locate the other vehicle in the crash on Notch Road in Ripton, and identified the driver as Timothy Emmett Edwards, 54, of Bristol.
State police report that Edwards showed signs of impairment. Troopers cited Edwards for driving under the influence (second offense), leaving the scene of an accident and driving with a criminally suspended license.
Edwards was unhurt in the crash, but Webb reported back pain.
Separately, On Sept. 17 at approximately 5:25 p.m. troopers saw Alara Bourgeois, 25, of Bristol driving a red 1997 GMC Suburban on Route 17 in New Haven. Recognizing Bourgeois from previous incidents, and knowing that her license was suspended and there was an active warrant for her arrest for failure to appear in court, the trooper stopped her motor vehicle and took Bourgeois into custody.
State police took Bourgeois to the New Haven barracks for processing and then transported her to the Chittenden Regional Correctional facility, where she was lodged with bail set at $200. Police cited Bourgeois for driving while suspended license.
