On April 27, 2021 at approximately 1727 hours, Troopers from the St. Johnsbury

Barracks responded to a reported motor vehicle vs pedestrian crash on Main St N

in Wells River, VT. Troopers arrived in scene and learned that Slater was

stopped at the intersection of Railroad St, waiting to turn onto Main St N, and

when he pulled forward to make the turn struck OMalley, who was crossing the

street.

OMalley suffered suspected minor injuries and was transported to Cottage
