SHAFTSBURY — A 40-year-old man from Bennington was cited following a crash in Shaftsbury last month.

On July 7, authorities say they were notified of a single-vehicle crash on West Mountain Road at around 12:30 a.m.

According to the report, Peter H. Bolster, was traveling too fast for road conditions at the time, causing the vehicle to fishtail and collide into a tree.

The Chevrolet Silverado involved in the crash sustained heavy front-end damage and was totaled from the collision.

Following an investigation, police say that Bolster was operating the Chevrolet Silverado in a negligent manner and at a high rate of speed, ultimately colliding into a tree.

Troopers located evidence inside the vehicle that belonged to Bolster and learned that Bolster’s license is criminally suspended.

Yesterday, Bolster was located in Shaftsbury and was cited for violations of title 23 VSA 674 criminal DLS and title 23 VSA 1091 negligent operation of a motor vehicle.
