Vermont State Police Log for May 12

VERMONT — Between May 3 and 10, Vermont State Police operating out of the New Haven barracks reported two motor vehicle crashes and one person allegedly violating court orders.

Both crashes occurred on the afternoon of May 4, when it was raining.

In the first, police report that Emmalee Smith, 36, of Salisbury was driving a 2006 VW Passat southbound on Lake Dunmore Road in Salisbury at a little before 4 p.m. when she apparently fell asleep at the wheel. The VW went off the road and hit a tree, resulting in minor bumps and bruises to the driver and totaling the car. State police were assisted by the Salisbury Fire Department and Rescue.

Then, at around 4:25, state police closed the northbound lane and part of the southbound lane of Route 116 in the area of the Bristol Country Store on the south end of town after a tractor-trailer got stuck in a ditch. Traffic was delayed for around 40 minutes while the rig was removed.

The next day, May 5, troopers looked into a report that Ryan Lamothe, 42, of Bristol had violated orders of the court by consuming alcohol when he was ordered not to. Police cited Lamothe for violating conditions of release.
