NEW HAVEN, VT: Vermont State Police Troopers say that a Bakersfield man is fortunate to be alive after a motorcycle crash.

Joshua Morris, 25, of Bakersfield and Christopher Dusablon, 29, of Essex were traveling North north together, but on separate motorcycles, on Route 7 in New Haven when they collided, according to Trooper Stephen McNamara.

The collision caused both men to lose control of their motorcycles. Morris was thrown from his motorcycle, causing a possible broken leg. Dusablon hit a Chevrolet Silverado driven by Jason Roberts, 35, of Rutland.

According to the Trooper, Dusablon was trapped underneath the Silverado and had to be freed by rescue crews using the Jaws of Life, but died after being transported to Porter Hospital in Middlebury.

Dusablon’s 2009 Suzuki RGSX was totaled as well as Morris’ 2004 Yamaha, according to State Police.

Police said that Roberts did not report any injuries.

Police are asking anyone with information about the crash to contact them at the New Haven Barracks at (802) 388-4919.
