SUMMARY OF CRASH:
On 6/1/2020, at about 12:00 PM, Troopers from the Vermont State Police Westminster Barracks responded to a one-car motor vehicle crash on Interstate 91 Southbound, near MM33.
First arriving Troopers were met with heavy fire and a thick smoke condition. It was then learned once on scene, that a bystander, in an act of bravery, had pulled the two occupants from the vehicle and dragged them to safety.
Subsequent investigation determined that the vehicle was traveling at an excessive speed, left the roadway, launched off a boulder, and landed several hundred feet deep in the tree line. The vehicle then caught fire and became engulfed in flames.
It was also determined, that the Operator, Carlisle A. Mohammadi, 31, of Tampa, Florida, was operating the vehicle under the influence of an intoxicating substance. Mohammadi was transported to the Springfield Hospital, were he was treated for in his injuries and processed for the crime.
Additional criminal and civil charges are pending, as this crash continues to be investigated.
