SUMMARY OF CRASH:
On September 11, 2021, at approximately 1115 hrs Troopers from the Vermont State
Police Rutland Barracks were dispatched to a car versus bicycle crash on US
Route 7 in the Town of Wallingford.
Upon arrival, Troopers learned through evidence on scene and statements provided
that Randall McLellan was riding his bicycle north on US Route 7 in the
northbound lane of travel. Mr. Johnson was traveling northbound on US Route 7
in his 2008 GMC Sierra. As Mr. Johnson approached Mr. McLellan, he moved toward
the center of the road to give space to Mr. McLellan on his bicycle. Mr.
McLellan swerved farther into the northbound lane at the last minute. Mr.
Johnson was unable to move any further as he would have entered the southbound
lane of travel. The side view towing mirror of Mr. Johnson’s vehicle struck Mr.
McLellan which forced him off the east side of the roadway.
State Police were assisted by Wallingford Fire Department.
