Icy roads blamed for two crashes
Two drivers and a passenger escaped injury after hitting icy patches in separate incidents on Vermont roads Thursday, according to Vermont State Police.
Police said Ross Labounty, 18, was driving south on North Danville Road that evening when he hit black ice, overcorrected and went off the road. State police said the Saturn Ion he was driving had minor damage to the front end.
Both Labounty and his passenger were wearing seat belts, and no injuries were reported.
A driver also walked away unhurt after hitting a patch of ice and rolling his vehicle in Wells River on Thursday afternoon, according to Vermont State Police.
Derick Boyce, 19, of Newbury, was going east on Route 302 when the truck he was driving slid sideways off the road and rolled onto the passenger side, police said.
Boyce was wearing his seat belt. The truck had damage to the rear end and rear passenger side.MORE IN This Just InNational Forest
