ARLINGTON — A Shaftsbury man was sent to the hospital with minor injuries after a crash Saturday afternoon, according to the Vermont State Police.
Police believe Howard Guber, 75, of Kennesaw, Ga., was driving a 2007 Toyota Camry north on Route 7A in Arlington when he turned left in front of Eric Broderson, 44, of Shaftsbury, who was driving a 2009 KMT motorcycle, south on Route 7A.
Broderson unsuccessfully attempted to stop. His motorcycle slid into the rear passenger side of Guber’s car as Broderson hit the pavement.
The crash was reported to police around 4:40 p.m. When they reached the scene, members of the Arlington Fire Department and Arlington Rescue Squad had already arrived.
Broderson, who was wearing his helmet at the time of the crash, was taken to the Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington with minor injuries. Guber, who was not injured in the crash, was issued a citation for failing to yield right of way.MORE IN This Just In
