SUMMARY OF CRASH: On 07/09/20 at approximately 0332 hours Vermont State Police
were dispatched to a single vehicle crash in the area of 478 Shippee Road,
Readsboro, at the request of Readsboro Fire and Rescue. The call initially came
in as a medical call, however fire and rescue found it to be a motor vehicle
crash.

Troopers arrived on scene and began to investigate the incident. Two people who
were on scene, advised the vehicle was stolen from a camp they were staying at,
just over the border in Massachusetts. According to these two witnesses on
scene, they attempted to track down the vehicle on foot, from the Florida
Mountain area, and located the vehicle on its roof, in the ditch and nobody
around with it.

It was apparent on scene that speed was a factor in the actual crash itself, as
it appeared the operator lost control of the vehicle as they attempted to
negotiate a moderate curve in the roadway, and over corrected their steering.
The operator has yet to still be identified, however troopers are looking into
several leads. A later release will be sent out with any updates.

This case is considered still open, pending investigation. Anyone with any
information pertaining to this incident is encouraged to contact the Vermont
State Police at 802-442-5421. Information can also be submitted anonymously
online at www.vtips.info or text “CRIMES” (274637) to Keyword: VTIPS.
