SUMMARY OF CRASH: On May 14, 2022 at approximately 11:32 AM Troopers with VSP-St. Albans responded to Rt. 104 in front of Erica’s Diner for a report of a two-vehicle crash with injuries. Operator #1 was identified as 56-year-old Kevin Brown of Swanton and Operator #2 was identified as 21-year-old Vijayata Dahal of Winooski.

 

Investigation revealed that Brown was traveling north on Rt. 104 (into Fairfax). Dahal was traveling south on Rt. 104 (towards Cambridge). Directly in front of Erica’s Diner, Brown crossed the double-yellow center lines and crossed into the path of Dahal. The involved vehicles made contact in the southbound lane of Rt. 104. This caused Brown’s vehicle to rollover.

 

Brown, Dahal, and one passenger in Dahal’s vehicle were transported to Northwestern Medical Center to be treated for minor-moderate injuries. Speed and/or operator impairment are not suspected to have been a factor in this crash.

 

Vermont State Police were assisted by local Fire/EMS services.
