There is an ongoing investigation and a call for information as police are looking into a single-vehicle crash that occurred Tuesday morning. Vermont State Police say that three people were injured when a 2000 Volkswagen Passat was totaled after crashing on Interstate 91 around 1:30 Tuesday morning just north of mile marker 80 near White River Junction, Vermont. The driver lost control of the vehicle and it went off of the road on the east side of the Interstate.
After coming to a rest, it burst into flames and all three occupants were able to escape, but not without suffering non-life threatening injuries. 27-year old Michael Alger and 24-year old Jonathan Ruggles of Haverhill, NH and 26-year old John Winot of Woodsville were injured, including lacerations and bruising.
Police are looking for two pieces of information: they are hoping to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the crash or the green Volkswagen between the hours of 1:00 and 1:30 AM on I-89 north between Lebanon to WRJ or on I-91 north between WRJ and Norwich.
If you have information on either the crash or the saw the car that was involved, you’re asked to contact Trooper Pregent at the Royalton State Police Barracks between the hours of 5:00 PM and 2:00 AM. The phone number for the Barracks is 802-234-9933.
