Vermont State Police Log for Apr. 7

ADDISON COUNTY — On a cold and slippery March 28, Vermont State Police were busy with some tractor-trailer crashes that closed Route 22A for hours.

At around 4 a.m. that Monday morning, troopers responded to a report of a motor vehicle crash in Addison about halfway between Routes 17 and 125.

Troopers first determined that Raihan Lukman, 29, of Bronx, N.Y., was driving a 2021 Freightliner tractor-trailer south on Route 22A and due to the icy conditions, he lost control of the vehicle, left the road and jackknifed. This blocked both northbound and southbound travel lanes.

Lukman’s truck sustained extensive front-end damage in the crash and was eventually towed away.

In the same call, troopers report that Rene Aquino, 59, of Clifton, N.J., was driving his own 2003 Freightliner tractor-trailer south on route 22A and slid on the ice into the rear end of a Freightliner tractor-trailer driven by Jared Forand, 22, of Starksboro. Aquino’s vehicle sustained extensive front-end damage and was towed from the scene; Forand’s truck sustained minor damage but was operable.

Vermont Route 22A was closed for approximately six hours that Monday while crews worked to clear the roadway. State police were assisted at the scene by the Department of Motor Vehicles and Addison Fire Department.

The only other report from the New Haven state police barracks between March 29 and April 6 was a March 31 report that Richard Ambrose, 50, of Panton had violated court orders by entering a place where he was ordered not to. Police cited Ambrose for violation of an abuse prevention order and violation of conditions of release.
