SUMMARY OF CRASH:

On the above date and time Vermont State Police responded to a three vehicle

crash on VT RT 100 near 820 Waterbury Stowe Rd. While enroute dispatch advised

Troopers three vehicles were involved and a pedestrian had been struck.

Investigation revealed that Ferrell had been driving southbound on VT RT 100

before crossing the center lines and striking a pedestrian on the shoulder,

hitting the guardrail and striking Vehicles #2 and #3. He then crossed back over

the center lines again and came to an uncontrolled rest against rocks off the

side of the road. All three vehicles were towed from the roadway. Parties

involved with injuries were cleared by EMS personnel.

Ferrell was screened for suspicion of operating under the influence, but

ultimately it was determined that this may have been caused by a medical event.

Ferrell was issued Civil Violations and there is further investigation pending.

Vermont Civil Violations Issued:

– Title 23 Section 676, Operating After Suspension

– Title 23 Section 1038, Driving on Roadways Laned for Traffic
