House Hunting Trucker Has A Really Bad Day
Bethel, Vermont – 44-year-old Vermont truck driver, Stephen Driscoll, had a bad day on Tuesday. Driscoll was driving a 2019 Peterbilt semi eastbound on Route 107 in Bethel, Vermont shortly after 4 a.m. when, according to authorities, the rig “left the road, struck two vehicles and came to an uncontrolled rest after striking the front of a multifamily housing unit.”
Bethel Town Constable Mark Belisle said Driscoll was traveling approximately 40 m.p.h. when “he supposedly swerved for some animal,” causing the crash. Driscoll’s day got worse because he was then arrested on an outstanding warrant out of Caledonia County after he was evaluated at a nearby hospital as a precaution.
The accident left at least four tenants living in the building displaced. Constable Belisle said the apartment building at 286 S. Main St. was condemned on Tuesday due to damage to the foundation and structure. Plus, the semi struck two vehicles causing moderate to heavy damage according to police. Thankfully, no one was hurt in the incident.
Police say the investigation is ongoing and no determination has been made as to whether Driscoll will be cited.
