Logging Vehicle Flips on I-89



Vt. State Police - 6:55 pm Fri Sep 8th, 2017

On 9/8/17 at approximately 1400 hours, VT State Police responded to a two vehicle crash on I-89 North in Richmond.

Vehicle 1 was traveling on I-89 South and hydroplaned in the wet conditions, crossed over the median and into the northbound lane, colliding with Vehicle 2. Vehicle 2 was a flatbed tractor trailer carrying logs. Vehicle 2 rolled upside down on the right hand side of the roadway.

Operator 2 suffered minor injuries. Operator 1 suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries, and was transported to UVM Medical Center.

This crash is still under investigation, but alcohol or drugs do not appear to be factors. Wet roads and rainy conditions appear to be contributing factors.

I-89 North was reduced to one lane for several hours while troopers conducted the investigation.

VT State Police were assisted by the Richmond Police, Richmond Fire Department, Richmond Rescue, Charlebois Trucking, and Blackfork Towing.
