SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:

On the above date and approximate time, a trooper observed a group of approximately 15-20 sport-style motorcycles traveling in a dangerous manner on VT-111 in Morgan, operating at high rates of speed, crowding, tailgating and unsafely passing vehicles, creating a substantial public safety hazard.  Ultimately, the trooper was able to catch up to and effect a stop of one of the vehicles, which had been observed tailgating, unsafely passing, and traveling at speeds between 70-80 MPH in the posted 35 MPH zone near the Morgan Country Store.

 

The remainder of the vehicles continued traveling east on VT-111.  These vehicles were not pursued and there were no other law enforcement units in the area.

 

The operator of the stopped vehicle, a 2019 Kawasaki Ninja, was identified as the accused.  She was issued a criminal citation to appear in court on 11/14/23, and released from the scene.

 

Shortly thereafter, the aforementioned vehicles were observed again traveling in a similar manner, however there was no law enforcement in that area at the time.
