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.
