VERMONT CAR ACCIDENTS LEAVE SEVERAL INJURED
Recent Vermont car accidents leave several people injured and another cited for driving under the influence of drugs. Weather conditions may have been a factor.
A Townshend car accident occurred on Saturday, January 24, 2010, after a vehicle skidded off the road and landed in a brook. According to Vermont State Police, Wendall L. Darrell, 35, of Springfield, was driving a 2006 Chevrolet Blazer when he lost control of the vehicle at the intersection of Route 35 and Deer Valley Road. Darrell was not injured in the wreck.
According to police, there were two passengers in the Chevrolet at the time of the accident. They have been identified as Paula Martin, 54, of Rockingham, and Thomas Moody, 53, also from Rockingham. They both suffered bruised ribs and facial injuries. It was unclear whether anyone was transported to the hospital.
Fortunately, according to reports, all three victims had seatbelts on at the time the vehicle skidded off the road. Police believe that icy conditions may have contributed to the accident.
A few days later, on Saturday, January 30, 2010, Jeremy Damon, 33, of Rockingham, was cited in a Rockingham rollover accident that totaled his 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier. The incident took place on Back Westminster Road.
Vermont State Police cited Damon for driving under the influence of drugs. Damon was not seriously injured. No other injuries were reported.
