Vermont State Police Log: Two cited for impaired driving after crashes

ADDISON COUNTY — In the past week, three Addison County men were involved in motor vehicle crashes that Vermont State Police investigated. Two were cited for driving under the influence (DUI).

In the first incident, troopers checked out a report of a vehicle that crashed into a house near the intersection of Furnace Road and Route 7 in Pittsford at a quarter past midnight on Dec. 22. Upon arrival, state police determined that Andrew Brons, 57, of Vergennes was driving southbound on Route 7 when he left the road and crashed into a house.

Police said Brons displayed signs of impairment, and ultimately was cited for DUI.

The house sustained substantial damage but there were no injuries as a result of the crash.

On Dec. 23 at around 6:40 p.m. troopers responded to a one-car crash into a guard rail on Quaker Village Road in Weybridge. Police screened he driver, identified at 23-year-old Alexander Amory of New Haven, and ended up citing him for DUI.

Finally, on Christmas — Dec. 25 — at a little after 2:30 p.m. state police looked into a report of another one-car crash – this one on Route 22A in Panton, near the intersection with Sunset Knoll Road. State police report that driver George Mendoza, 56, of Addison was overly tired while driving a 2016 Jeep Renegade and as a result left the roadway, struck several mailboxes and a speed limit sign before coming to as stop in an upright position.

Neither speed nor impairment were a contributing factor in the crash, police said. Troopers report that they educated Mendoza on the dangers of drowsy driving. Mendoza suffered minor cuts and the Jeep he was driving was considered a total loss.
