Vermont State Police report that a two-vehicle accident occurred at the bottom of the Proctorsville Gulf around 12:50 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 8.

Ludlow Ambulance and Proctorsville Fire Department were dispatched to the crash on VT103 in the town of Cavendish.

Police say that a 2012 Ford Fusion driven by a Brattleboro resident was traveling south on VT103 when it crossed the center line on a slight right hand curve and struck the driver’s side doors of a 2003 Mercury Sable, which was being driven northbound by a Ludlow resident.  The impact caused the Sable to spin out counterclockwise, strike the guard rails and come to rest facing south approximately 200 feet north of the area of impact.

The Fusion continued southeast, struck the guard rail end, left the east side of the road, went down an embankment and struck a small tree in a swampy area. The driver of the Sable was uninjured while both the driver and the passenger in the Fusion were taken to the Springfield Hospital by Ludlow Ambulance for treatment of what were believed to be minor injuries.

The operator of the Fusion was issued a civil ticket for possession of marijuana and a criminal citation to appear in Windsor Superior Court-Criminal Division on Tuesday, Oct. 27 on a charge of negligent operation.  The driver of the Sable was found to be operating under suspension in the State of Vermont and she will be issued a civil traffic ticket for that violation.  The Proctorsville Fire Departmentassisted with traffic control. Both cars were towed from the scene.
