On Aug. 18, at approximately 4:38 p.m., Vermont State Police responded to a single vehicle crash on Vermont Route 131 in Weathersfield. Weather conditions were dry and clear at the time of the crash.
Joel Knight, 22, of Springfield, was traveling west when his vehicle went off the road. After going off the right side, the vehicle struck an embankment, which caused it to roll back onto the road, landing on its roof.
Knight was transported to Springfield Hospital with minor injuries.
Knight was not wearing a seatbelt and it appears the crash was the result of driver fatigue.
Police issued Knight a ticket for failing to maintain control of his vehicle within the marked lane and a seatbelt violation. The Ascutney Fire Department and Golden Cross Ambulance responded to the scene along with the state police.
