Vergennes Police Log: Driver ticketed after two-car accident

VERGENNES — Vergennes police on Oct. 31 ticketed a New York driver for a two-car accident on North Main Street right outside the police station that resulted in one vehicle rolling over. 

Police said the southbound vehicle heading to Moriah crossed over the center line, clipped the left rear of another vehicle and caused it to flip over. The driver of that vehicle was transported to the UVM Medical Center, but police said his injuries were not serious, and he ultimately declined treatment. 

City police ticketed the driver of the southbound vehicle for failing to maintain his lane and for operating at an “unreasonable and imprudent” speed. 

On the day before — Monday, Oct. 30 — city police responded on behalf of Vermont State Police along with the Vergennes Area Rescue Squad to the Aubuchon Hardware parking lot across the city line in Ferrisburgh, where an elderly woman was struck by a vehicle. Police said VARS took the pedestrian to the UVM with fairly serious, but non-life threatening, injuries.
