SUMMARY OF CRASH:

 

On August 18, 2022 at approximately 1609 hours, Troopers from the Royalton Barracks came upon a two vehicle crash at MM19.2 north on Interstate 89 in the Town of Royalton.

 

Troopers learned that the Pontiac Vibe was parked in the breakdown lane due to a mechanical issue. A Freightliner Truck then approached the Pontiac and was unable to move to the passing lane due to being in a group of vehicles. The Freightliner subsequently side swiped the Pontiac.

 

No injuries were reported as a result of this crash, the Freightliner was driven from the scene and the Pontiac was towed.

 

This crash remains under investigation.
