Truck jack-knifes on 22A
BENSON — Police said icy roads contributed to a tractor-trailer jack-knifing on Route 22A early Monday morning.
Vermont State Police said Jack Wallace, 65, of Warnerville, N.Y., was driving a 2012 Freightliner loaded with “grocery goods” north at around 4 a.m. when he hit a patch of ice near Perch Pond Road and skidded off the road and into a ditch, colliding with several small trees in the process.
The trailer remained partially in the northbound lane. Traffic was temporarily diverted around the crash site.
Police said Wallace suffered minor scrapes and was taken to Rutland Regional Medical Center, where whe was treated and released. The truck sustained “significant overall damage,” according to police.
