SUMMARY OF CRASH:

Townsend’s vehicle was involved in a crash just prior to the fatal crash on the same section of Route 12 near the Bethel Drive-in. Townsend continued north from Bethel Drive on Route 12 passing the White River Valley Ambulance building to a point where construction is occurring for new bridge over Gilead Brook, near the intersection of Spring Hollow Road. Townsend’s vehicle traveled off the west side of the roadway south of the new bridge and travelled through the construction site, hitting several items. Townsend’s vehicle then collided with the southern abutment of the new bridge. Townsend was killed as a result of the crash. Speed appears to be a factor in the crash.

This crash remains under investigation and anyone with information is asked to call VSP-Royalton at 802-234-9933.
