Vermont State Police: Tractor-trailer driver gets DUI after crash

ADDISON COUNTY — This past Friday, March 1, in the middle of the night — specifically 2:48 a.m. — troopers from the New Haven barracks of the Vermont State Police responded to a report that a tractor-trailer had crashed off Route 7 near Quaker Street in Ferrisburgh.
Through investigation police determined that the tractor-trailer that Cordaro Jones, 31, of Corpus Christi, Texas, was driving slowly drifted to the right off the travelled portion of the roadway and crashing in a ditch. While speaking with Jones, troopers detected several signs of impairment, so they screened him for driving under the influence and subsequently arrested him.
Troopers took Jones to the New Haven barracks for processing, cited Jones to appear at the Addison County Superior Court on March 18 to answer to the charge of DUI, and released him. Authorities also issued Jones a ticket for driving off a road laned for traffic, which carries a fine of $220 and two points on the driver’s insurance.
State police officers were assisted on scene by Middlebury police, the Ferrisburgh Fire Department and the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles.
Also last week, on Feb. 26 at 8 a.m., state police observed a 2014 Nissan Rogue travelling southbound on Route 7 in New Haven at a high rate of speed. Troopers alleged that 20-year-old David Gikoshvili, whom police identified as being from Middlebury, was driving 92 mph in a 50 mph zone. They cited him for speeding.
