SHELDON: A crash here on Wednesday afternoon left one person with severe injuries, including a broken neck, according to Vermont State Police.
Vermont State Police Trooper Andrew Underwood, who investigated the crash, said it was caused when 82 year-old Roy Fortin of Sheldon was driving his 2001 Mercury Marquis. He was attempting to head east on Route 105 from Woods Hill Road, when he pulled out in front of Alexis Vieta, 16, of Enosburg, who was traveling west on Route 105 at the time.
The near head-on collision caused between Fortin’s Marquis and Vieta’s 2011 Ford Fusion snarled traffic for more than an hour, and caused a broken neck and several lacerations to Fortin, according to the Trooper.
No known injuries were reported to Vieta.
