74-year-old racer goes 113 MPH on I-89, injured in crash

A 74-year-old Waterbury man suffered serious injuries September 21 after his 2020 Mustang crashed on I-89 in Williston after reaching speeds of 113 MPH.

Police say Earl F. Greer was transported to UVMMC for “significant” injuries and was later released. They say he and the unknown driver of a Subaru WRX, which fled the scene, were racing in a 65 MPH speed zone.

Greer was unable to control his vehicle and crashed. He was not wearing his seatbelt. He was cited to appear for grossly negligent operation in Chittenden County Superior Court – Criminal Division.

Road conditions were dry. An Audi driven by Warren Strasser, 64, of Charlotte received damage police called ‘major disabling’. Strasser, who was wearing his seat belt and was not cited by police and was not involved in the illegal racing, was not injured. Greer’s Mustang also received damage termed ‘major disabling.’
