WATERBURY – An Enosburg Falls woman escaped serious injury, but the car she was driving was destroyed after it clipped the front end of a tractor-trailer truck while pulling into the passing lane on Interstate 89 Friday night. State police responded to the crash involving two northbound vehicles at 8:45 p.m. and found one of them wrecked on its roof in the median and the other with damage to its front bumper. One of the drivers – 56-year-old Gabrielle Tiffany of Enosburg Falls – sustained minor cuts to her arm, while the other, Yves Bernier, 53, of Granby, Quebec, was unhurt, police said. According to police, Bernier was driving a 2016 Kenworth in the passing lane and Tiffany was operating 2007 Volvo S80 in the travel lane. They said the crash occurred when “Tiffany merged into the passing lane without yielding to Bernier.” Police said the right front of Bernier’s truck collided with the left rear of Tiffany’s Volvo causing the car to go into a spin. The car went off the highway into the median and rolled over coming to rest on its roof, they said. According to police, the Tiffany’s Volvo was totaled in the crash, which limited traffic to one lane while the scene was cleared. Damage to Bernier’s truck was limited to the front bumper, they said. Neither driver was ticketed and Tiffany, who was wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash, did not need to be  taken to the hospital.
