Georgia, Vermont Car Accident Sends Man to Hospital
A Georgia, Vermont car accident involving a single vehicle sends one man to the hospital after his vehicle loses control and flips over. The incident took place on Sunday morning, February 14, 2010, along Interstate 89 in Franklin County.
According to police, the driver of a pickup truck lost control and crashed his vehicle. Troopers believe that black ice may have been a contributive factor in the wreck.
The driver has been identified as William Newton, 41, of Swanton. Rescue crews transported Williams to a local hospital where he was treated for injuries sustained in the accident. He was listed in serious condition.
An unidentified passenger was in the vehicle at the time of the accident. The extent of the victim’s injuries and condition were not made available.
“Conditions at the time looked pretty slick during that time frame,” said Vermont State Trooper Dustin Robinson. “He went off the roadway, hit the ledges and then overturned and came up when it was in the roadway.”
The single-vehicle Franklin County car accident is still under investigation by local authorities.
This is an unfortunate accident and our thoughts go out to all of those that have been impacted by the crash. We wish both victims a speedy recovery.
