Woman Crashes into Parked Logging Truck

West Weathersfield , Vermont
October 14, 2013

A woman from Weston VT was traveling south towards Downer's Four Corners on Monday October 14 when she had "some kind of medical event" according to Weathersfield Police Officer Jen Hutchins, who was first to respond and was investigating the accident. The woman driver said she has just come from her doctor's office and was asked before leaving if she was OK to drive. She told the doctor she was.

Officer Hutchins said the woman and her dog, a yellow lab named Katie were both uninjured and the woman refused ambulance transport.

Two witnesses visiting the area for foliage season from Switzerland and Germany were traveling behind the red BMW when it appeared the "woman fell asleep" and drove into the parked logging truck owned by Jim Cloud of Reading VT.

Cloud said he and his crew were across the street working on a job site when they heard "this scrapping and load crash sound."
