Single Farm Tractor Crash



Vt. State Police - 5:10 pm Sun Aug 10th, 2014

On 08-10-2014 at approximately 1108 hours, members of the Vermont State Police responded to a single farm tractor crash on North Rd just north of the Chester Arthur Rd intersection in Fairfield, VT.

It was learned that the Operator (Menard) was pulling out from the Brannon Farm in a John Deere 7810 tractor when the rake attachment got caught on some cables. As the tractor continued the cables grew taunt, snapped the power pole and then sent electrical currents towards the tractor. The rubber wheels on the attachment caught fire while the cable was still attached and laying across the roadway. Menard was able to quickly get off and away from the tractor escaping any injuries. Menard was checked out by Rescue personal as a precaution, but no injuries were documented.
Green Mountain Power and Fairpoint crews responded to repair the broken pole. During the time of repair, North Rd was closed for traffic for approximately 5 hours (1108-1400 hours) due to the hazardous cables laying across the roadway. The roadway is open to single lane traffic as the work crews continue to finalize the repairs. Fairfield Fire remained on scene along with VSP until the roadway was safe to travel on after the hazard was removed.
