    Drink said to

    cause truck crash

    A shaken can of “Red Bull,” the popular energy drink, was blamed as the cause of a crash at the intersection of Route 4 and Town Line Road in Rutland Town on Sunday.

    Vermont State Police say they were called to the intersection at 2:14 p.m. where a 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe had crashed into a mailbox owned by the Rocking Horse Store.

    The driver of the truck, Peter Capkovic, 31, of Slovenska, Slovenia, told police he lost control of the vehicle when his friend opened a can of Red Bull and the beverage “exploded” all over the cab.

    In the momentary confusion, the truck, a rental from Enterprise, veered into the oncoming lane before striking the mailbox.

    No injuries were reported in the crash and only minor damage to the truck was reported, police said.
