On July 12 at approximately 0623 hours, Troopers from the Royalton Barracks, Westminster Barracks, and Middlesex Barracks were dispatched to the area of mile marker 66 on I-91 North in the Town of Hartland, VT, for a report of several vehicles which crashed at that location. Hartford and Hartland Fire and Rescue also responded as well as the Agency of Transportation and an Inspector from the Department of Motor Vehicles commercial team. Upon arrival, responders learned a two-vehicle crash occurred on the bridge near mile marker 66/40 North, which caused both lanes of traffic to be at a standstill. According to the Vermont State Police, a pick-up truck hauling drilling equipment was unable to come to a stop and collided with several of the stopped vehicles, which caused approximately nine (9) vehicles to sustain front and rear end damage. There were no reported injuries. The roadway was closed for approximately two hours while vehicles were being recovered and roadway debris cleared. This investigation is ongoing, said the VTSP.
