Storm causes havoc on Vermont roads

From Burlington Free Press

Vermont State Police in Middlesex reported multiple accidents related to the snowstorm that hit the state.
One state police cruiser with its blue lights flashing was parked on the side of Vermont 100 in Waitsfield when it was struck Saturday as a trooper tried to assist another motorist who had gone off the road, Sgt. Michael Kamerling said.
Cameron Nevin, 20, of Moretown received a civil ticket for driving at an unreasonable speed under poor weather conditions, which included snow and ice covered roads, Kamerling said.
Earlier in the day, Mary Sheehan, 67, of Danvers, Mass., was eastbound on Vermont 17 in Fayston when she lost control of her car. It went off the right side of the road by German Flats Road, rolled down an embankment and onto the ice of the Mad River, Sgt. Ray LeBlanc said.
Rescue people pulled Danvers and a juvenile passenger from the car. They were taken by Mad River Valley Ambulance to Central Vermont Medical Center in Berlin for precautionary reasons and later released, LeBlanc said.
In a third crash, Todd Cassell, 37, of Middlesex sustained possible neck and back injuries in a crash on Center Road in Middlesex and was taken to Central Vermont Medical Center following a crash during the snowstorm Friday, Trooper Michael Muise said.
