Andy Elkins, 42, of Georgia died at the scene, according to police. Investigators say they are still trying to determine if alcohol or speed were factors.

Elkins was the only occupant of his Honda Civic at the time of the crash, according to police.

According to Officer Randy Dame, the man was driving north on Maquam Shore Road in St. Albans Town when somehow he lost control. His vehicle ultimately ended up resting with its driver’s door against a tree.

Firefighters used a flatbed to move Elkins vehicle away from the tree in order to remove him from the driver’s seat.

The vehicle the man was driving was a 2000 Silver Honda Civic, according to state records.




Elkins was a graduate of Enosburg Falls High School and originally from Montgomery, according to his Facebook page.
