Truck Collison Closes Route 7 For Several Hours

Print More

Police in Vermont say a head-on crash of two tractor-trailers owned by the same company closed Route 7 for several hours in Ferrisburgh.

The trucks collided just south of Dakin Farms, when the southbound one veered across the center line. No one was injured.

Both trucks were owned by Reithoffer Shows, which runs the midway at the Champlain Valley Fair in Essex Junction. One was carrying a ride to the fairgrounds. Reithoffer officials at the scene declined comment.

Traffic was detoured off Route 7 for several hours before the road reopened mid-afternoon.

A state Department of Motor Vehicles inspector will determine if mechanical failure played a part in the crash.
