BRADFORD — A 75-year-old man from Maidstone was involved in a single-vehicle crash in Bradford yesterday.

Authorities say they were notified by dispatch about a brown pickup truck that crashed into barriers within a work zone at around 11:25 a.m.

This section of Interstate 91 has been under construction for an extended period of time and has been reduced to one lane of travel.

Troopers located the vehicle a short time later traveling north near mile marker 114.

The driver was identified as Robert Fish.

Police say that Fish operated his vehicle into an active work zone to avoid a collision with a vehicle in front of him.

Fish struck several orange construction barriers and several yellow barriers filled with sand, which resulted in damage to both the barriers and his vehicle.

According to the report, he continued through the active construction zone without stopping, nearly striking a construction worker.
