Road worker hit by truck in Bridport

BRIDPORT — A construction site flagger was hospitalized for treatment of injuries to his abdomen and lower extremities after having been struck by a truck driven by a Middlebury man on Route 125 in Bridport on Thursday, March 28.

Vermont State Police identified the injured flagger as 30-year-old Connor Joy of Benington. Police said Joy was in the process of halting traffic mid-afternoon on Thursday when he was struck by an eastbound, 2014 Dodge Ram truck driven by 75-year-old James M. Ross.

State police said emergency responders took Joy to the University of Vermont Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.

They said Ross — who was wearing a seatbelt — sustained “moderate” injuries that didn’t require a hospital visit. Police reported damage to the passenger-side headlight of the truck.

Following the incident, Ross was interviewed at the Vergennes Police Department, according to state police. They said the crash remains under investigation, and anyone with information to provide is encouraged to contact the VSP’s New Haven barracks at 802-388-4919. The investigating trooper is Gabriel Schrauf.
