Vermont State Police trooper nearly hit by rollover crash

A driver was injured in a collision with a rollover that nearly hit a government soldier who was watching another accident, police said. Video of the incident in Dammerston, Vermont, recorded on Saturday morning on a dashboard camera of a cruiser, shows a silver SUV losing control while moving on a curve on the road. The vehicle rolled in the middle, sending debris over a soldier and a truck in the other lane. “This crash σχεδόν is almost so close to the disappearance of the soldier and the family who stopped to help,” Vermont police wrote in a social media post. “The soldier jumped over the guardrail and escaped injury.” Two young children inside the SUV were using car seats and were reported as “relatively well”, according to police. The 28-year-old driver – who was not wearing a seat belt – jumped out of the car and was slightly injured. State police investigators said none of the injuries were considered life-threatening. The crash occurred as snow fell in Dammerston and other nearby communities on Saturday, leaving many roads covered in snow until the early hours of the morning. “With more winter weather on the road this week, this situation serves as a strong reminder of how important it is to slow down, drive well for road conditions and always wear a seat belt,” state police wrote. No charges have been filed in connection with the crash.
