WEATHERSFIELD, Vt.WCAX reported that at about 12:50 Sunday morning, Troopers responded to a single vehicle crash on I-91 South in Weathersfield.
Police say Keanan Thompson, 22, of Stockbridge, Vermont, was traveling south in his Jeep Wrangler when it began to drift off the left hand side of the interstate for reasons unknown. The vehicle traveled several hundred feet in the grassy median before abruptly turning back onto the Interstate. The jeep then crossed both Southbound lanes, striking the guardrails on the shoulder and spinning until it stopped in the left hand travel lane.
