Vermont State Police Log: Police respond to a three-car accident

ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police dealt with a three-car crash on Route 7 that sent two people to the hospital, but resulted in only one minor injury on Aug. 3.

At around 5 p.m. that day troopers from the New Haven barracks responded to the crash on Route 7 north of its intersection with Middlebrook Road in Ferrisburgh. Police report a 2010 Subaru Legacy driven by a 16-year-old was stopped in the southbound lane, and a 2003 VW Golf was stopped behind the Subaru. A southbound 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by Patricia Jannene, 66, of Cornwall came up behind the Golf and was unable to stop in time, police said. The Jeep struck the Golf, which then struck the Subaru.

Jannene was taken to Porter Hospital for treatment of suspected minor injuries; the driver of the Golf was also taken to the hospital as a precaution. The Jeep sustained front-end damage; the other two cars were judged to be total losses.
