A 22-year-old Pomfret, Vermont man was hospitalized Monday after an early-morning accident on Route 4 in Woodstock. According to police, Nicholas Christian was driving his Pontiac Grand Am east along Route 4 shortly before 3:30 Monday morning when he allegedly veered into the path of an oncoming tractor-trailer.
The operator of the tractor-trailer, Edwin Berry of Wheelock, Vermont, swerved to avoid a head-on collision, but a significant collision still occurred – according to a press release – causing heavy damage to both vehicles.
Christian was transported to nearby Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center for treatment of unknown injuries, while Berry was unharmed as a result of the accident. Conditions were dry at the time of the collision, and it was not immediately known whether alcohol or fatigue were factors.
Woodstock Police say an investigation into the crash remains ongoing, and are asking anyone who may have witnessed the collision to contact them at (802) 457-1420.
