A 55-year-old Swanton man is dead after his pickup truck left I-89 in Georgia last night. The cause of the accident is unknown.
Shortly after 6 pm, Vermont State Police (VSP) received multiple reports of a single vehicle rollover on I-89 south bound near mm 109.2 in Georgia. First responders observed a white GMC Sierra off the east side of the roadway. The vehicle was at an uncontrolled position of rest facing east. The rear portion of the vehicle was on top of the guard rail.
Investigation revealed the vehicle was initially travelling south on I-89, then left the east side of the roadway, continued into the median, and crashed into an embankment and a large tree. The vehicle then over-turned and came to an uncontrolled position of rest on the guard rail.
During the crash the unrestrained passenger was thrown from the vehicle. He was later transported to UVM Medical Center to be treated for non-life threatening injuries. The operator, Scott A. Campbell, was entrapped in the vehicle and pronounced deceased on scene.
VSP was assisted on scene by the Georgia Fire Department, Am Care Rescue and McRea’s Wrecker Service. At this point it is unknown if speed or impairment were factors.
