SUMMARY OF CRASH:

On 6/6/22 at approximately 14:50 hours, Vermont State Police received a report of a motorcycle crash in the town of Swanton.  The location was VT RT 78 near the intersection of Jonergin Dr.  Preliminary investigation revealed that while traveling on RT 78, vehicle #1 (motorcycle) operated by Nathan Tatro (age 32), struck the back of a box truck (vehicle #2) while it was preparing to turn left.  Tatro was thrown from the motorcycle and into the roadway, and then appears to have been struck by a dump truck approaching in the opposite lane (vehicle #3). At this point, impairment is not suspected to be a contributing factor in this crash. This investigation is ongoing at this time, and anyone who may have witnessed the crash is asked to contact the Vermont State Police – Saint Albans barracks with any pertinent information.
