GEORGIA: Vermont State Police say that Adam Desrochers, 35, of Swanton Vermont was killed in a single-vehicle crash, Saturday afternoon, in Georgia.
According to Trooper Bruzzi, Desrochers’ vehicle was traveling northbound in the passing lane. It left the roadway, and traveled in the snow for a significant distance before into the median, before hitting the back side of a guardrail. Bruzzi said the vehicle flipped when it hit the guardrail and landed in one of the northbound lanes of Interstate 89, after rolling multiple times.
“Desrochers, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene due to injuries sustained in the crash,” the officer said in a written statement.
Police said that they are looking into several factors that could have lead to the cause of the crash, but speed does seem to be the primary cause at this point in time.
Desrocher’s vehicle, a Chevrolet Monte Carlo, was totaled in the crash.
Desrochers was the only occupant of the single-car crash, according to police.
Derocher was thrown about 96 feet from his vehicle, according to officials on the scene.
The Interstate was shut down for about an hour and a half as a result of the crash. Both lanes are now open.
