POLICE: VT FF CAUSED CRASH

Tuesday, November 19, 2013 Police say a Bennington firefighter caused a crash that seriously injured a woman and his lack of appropriate eyewear may be to blame.

The crash happened around 5 p.m. on West Road in front of the Bennington Rural Fire Department.

Police say 22-year-old Gregg Barr was driving a brush truck — and as he turned left into the station — he cut off 54-year-old Kimberly Hathaway. Her motorcycle collided with the side of the fire truck.

Barr was ticketed for failing to wear corrective lenses while driving — a requirement of his license.

A decision on possible criminal charges has not been made.
