Police chief says car hit him
LYNDONVILLE — A Vermont police chief says he was brushed by a car during a torch run for Special Olympics Vermont.
The driver said she didn’t know she was interrupting the run when she tried to cross a road Thursday. Sandra Raynor also said she didn’t know one of the four men jogging was Lyndonville Police Chief Jack Harris, who she said slammed his hand on her car and asked her what she was doing. She said she was just trying to get across the road.
Raynor said there were no signs about the run and Harris was not in uniform.
Harris said Raynor took off, with her vehicle brushing his knees. She was stopped for careless and negligent operation a block later by Harris, who had jumped into a cruiser.
