    EAST MONTPELIER ó Vermont State Police say a two-car accident Wednesday in East Montpelier was caused by a driver momentarily taking his eyes off the road.

    State police say Ryan Golden, 21, of Barre, was driving west on Route 2, looked away for a second and rear-ended Robert Rouleau, 27, who had stopped to pull into his driveway.

    State police say Goldenís vehicle sustained major front-end damage and Rouleauís sustained minor damage. Rouleauís 10-month-old daughter, who was in a car seat in his vehicle, was not injured, nor was Golden, police said, but Rouleau was taken to Central Vermont Medical Center with neck and back pain.
