Vermont State Police Log for Mar. 9

ADDISON COUNTY — On Thursday, March 2, Vermont State Police were put on the lookout for a vehicle being driven erratically on Monkton Road in Bristol. At around 6:39 p.m. troopers stopped a vehicle driven by Olman Ovares Lopez, 51, of North Ferrisburgh. Troopers observed several indicators of impairment and ultimately arrested Lopez and cited him for driving under the influence.

That was the only activity that Vermont State Police reported in Addison County between Feb. 28 and March 6. But some Addison County residents were affected on the afternoon of March 3 when authorities shut down Routh 7 in Charlotte just north of the Ferrisburgh town line.

Police reported that a 2010 Toyota Corolla driven by Aaron Grzych, 28, of St. Johnsbury speeding southbound on Route 7 crossed over the double yellow centerline, left the road and struck a utility pole causing power lines to block the roadway. A Jeep Cherokee struck the downed power lines. Police, who said Grzych was distracted by a portable electronic device while driving, cited Grzych for driving under the influence and negligent driving.

Emergency crews diverted traffic onto Greenbush Road in North Ferrisburgh and around the closed Route 7.

The Vergennes Police Department and Ferrisburgh Fire Department, among others, helped troopers.
