COVENTRY — A 22-year-old woman from Connecticut was transported to North Country Hospital after a two-vehicle crash in Coventry this morning.

The police were notified at around 7:00 a.m. that a vehicle headed south on Vermont Route 14, sild through the intersection of Route 5 and collided with an unloaded tanker trailer.

The driver was identified as Danielle Browning, of Hebron, CT.

Police say the truck was being operated by John Judd, 37, of Newport Center.

Judd was headed north on Route 5, and according to the report, he noticed Browning’s vehicle approach the intersection unable to stop.

He slowed down and moved as far to the right as he could but was unable to avoid the collision.

Browning’s vehicle slid partially underneath the tanker trailer which caused her to sustain what police describe as “incapacitating injuries.”

She was transported to North Country Hospital by Newport EMS.

Newport Fire Department also arrived on scene and assisted.
