BRADFORD — A 53-year-old man from Groton was arrested following a crash with injuries in Bradford yesterday.

Authorities say they were notified of a motorcycle crash on Vermont Route 25, near Chase Hollow Road, at around 7:40 p.m.

The driver of the motorcycle, Conn Dinsmore, 39, of Corinth, was severely injured as a result of the crash and was transported to Dartmouth shortly after Trooper’s arrival.

Following an investigation, it was found that Jeffrey Grant was operating his truck in a grossly negligent manner, crossing the center line, and veering into oncoming traffic before striking Dinsmore on his motorcycle.

Troopers on scene administered standardized field sobriety tests on Grant and placed him under arrest for suspicion of DUI.

He was processed at the St. Johnsbury State Police barracks and is scheduled for arraignment on Monday in Chelsea, to answer to the charges of DUI and gross negligent operation.

Police say Dinsmore is being treated for multiple and extensive fractures and is currently considered stable.
