Vermont State Police Log for Nov. 24

ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police at mid-month formally cited a Leicester man for alleged crimes he committed when a bad all-terrain vehicle crash in Orwell in September sent him to the hospital with serious injuries.

Vermont State Police reported that on Sept. 19 at around 6:25 p.m. they were summoned to a one-vehicle crash on Martin Hill Road near Raymond Hill Road. Troopers said that 46-year-old Craig Disorda was driving a 2018 Can Am ATV southbound on Raymond Hill Road. While attempting to yield to eastbound traffic on Martin Hill Road, police said Disorda lost control of his vehicle, which overturned and struck a tree off the eastbound side of Martin Hill Road.

Disorda, who was ejected from the vehicle, was rushed to Porter Hospital and subsequently flown to the University of Vermont Medical Center for suspected major injuries.

Troopers said they detected several signs of impairment in Disorda. After a followup investigation, on Nov. 16 they cited him for driving under the influence and driving with a criminally suspended license.

The Orwell Fire Department, Orwell First Response, and Middlebury Regional Emergency and Medical Services assisted state police at the scene of the crash.

In other recent activity, Vermont State Police:

  • On Nov. 13 at about 1:45 p.m. were called to a Route 7 address in Leicester and, after investigating, cited Maxx Rheaume, 22, of Salisbury for violation of conditions of release. When he heard police were looking for him, Rheaume turned himself in to the New Haven state police barracks.
  • On Nov. 13 at a little after 10 p.m. responded to a report of an ongoing family fight at a home on Shoreham Depot Road in Whiting. Troopers alleged that Justin Stone, 30, of Whiting had assaulted a household member and then left the house. Three days later state police found Stone and cited him for domestic assault.Editor’s note: This story was updated after it was originally posted to correct the timeline of when the Orwell accident occurred and when the Leicester man was cited.
