    WEST RUTLAND - A Middletown Springs teen sent his mother to the hospital with serious injuries following a crash this morning.

    According to State Police, around 7:30 a.m., a 15-year-old was driving north on Route 133 in a 2011 Chevrolet Traverse when his vehicle went off the road and struck a tree.

    The teen was driving under the supervision of his mother, Jennifer Sheridan, who sustained a broken back and broken ribs from the crash. She was taken to Rutland Regional Medical Center, where she was listed in good condition, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

    The teen was not injured. Neither drugs nor alcohol appear to have been factors in the crash, police said.
