No injuries in Arlington crash
ARLINGTON ó A North Bennington man was given a traffic ticket following a two-vehicle crash on Friday, but no injuries were reported, according to the Vermont State Police.
Roberta Stannard, 40, of Arlington, was driving a 2011 Volkswagen Jetta and stopped at the intersection of Warm Brook Road and Route 313 on Friday around 3:10 p.m., when Adam Olin, 25, of North Bennington, who was driving a 1996 Chevrolet Blazer, crashed into Stannardís Jetta from behind, police said.
Olin told police he had seen Stannard stopped at the intersection but ďmust not have been paying attention as he struck the car,Ē according to police.
No one was injured, including Olinís passenger, Danielle Goldstein, 22, and police said all three people involved were wearing their seat belts.
Olinís sports utility vehicle sustained very minor contact damage to the front bumper while Stannardís car sustained moderate damage to the rear bumper and trunk areas.
Police determined that Olin was at fault for the crash and issued him a traffic ticket for following too closely which carries a $214 fine and three points on a driverís license.MORE IN Southern VermontMONTPELIER ó The attorney generalís office and the Shumlin administration have joined...
