Colchester woman in I-89 crash

By

Vermont State Police issued two tickets following a two-vehicle collision in Winooski on the Exit 15 northbound ramp last week.

Thea M. Wescott, 20, of Richmond was cited for following too closely and operating without insurance after her car struck the rear end of a 2017 BMW 330 driven by Mary S. Griffo, 64, of Colchester on Wednesday, March 1.

Wescott was fined $220 and received five points on her license as a result of the collision. She was fined an additional $162 and received two more points on her license for lack of insurance.

Neither speed nor impairment contributed to the collision, a police report states, and neither driver was injured. Both vehicles sustained minor bumper damage.

VSP continue to warn motorists to maintain safe following distances to prevent collisions.
