SUMMARY OF CRASH:

 

On 02/21/2021 at approximately 1655 hours, the Vermont State Police Williston

Barracks received multiple 911 calls reporting a vehicle hauling a trailer on

fire on I89N by MM 73.40 in Bolton, just north of the Bolton flats. Troopers

responded to the scene and were accompanied by Richmond Police Department and

Richmond Fire Department. Richmond Fire Fighters worked quickly and detach the

trailer, with a snowmobile secured inside, from the burning vehicle. The

operator stated hearing a loud pop and felt the vehicle shake while travelling

north on I 89. The cause of the fire was undetermined. Both lanes were shut down

temporarily until the vehicle was extinguished. No injuries were sustained and

no damage was found to the trailer or snowmobile. Spillaine's Towing and

Blackfork Towing responded and removed the vehicle and trailer from the roadway.

 

 

No violations were found requiring enforcement.
