Springfield man injured in accident

A Springfield man received abrasions to his head after an accident in Weathersfield late last night.

Vermont State Police responded to a single vehicle crash on VT Route 12, in the Village of Ascutney in Weathersfield. Police determined that Daniel L. Davis, 22, of Springfield, Vermont was the operator of the Black Toyota Pickup Truck involved in the crash.

Investigation revealed that Davis lost control of the vehicle after he came to a corner and his vehicle hydroplaned due to the wet road.

Davis was transported to Claremont Valley Regional Hospital to be treated for his injuries. Golden Cross Ambulance Inc. and Ascutney Volunteer Fire Station assisted at the scene.    


  1. That truck in the photo with the story shows an illegal vehicle; the wheels are not supposed to extend outside the fenders.

    1. Thanks for that public service announcement.

    2. Form a posse...this kind of behavior must stop!

  2. Nobody cares 8:08

  3. The wider stance provided by those extended wheels provides GREATER stability, and should have improved the handling of the vehicle. (Just thought I'd beat a dead horse!)

    1. Yeah, I guess the automotive engineers who designed it wouldn't know about that kind of stuff.


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
