KILLINGTON — A tractor-trailer jackknifed early Sunday morning on US Route 4, causing traffic disruptions but no injuries, authorities said.

At about 6:30 a.m., Troopers from the Rutland Barracks responded to the incident involving a 2010 Kenworth tractor-trailer operated by Kenneth Hoag, 36, from Hoosick Falls, NY.

According to the Vermont State Police, Hoag was eastbound when he lost control on the icy blacktop, leading to the vehicle jackknifing.

Despite the cloudy weather and hazardous road conditions, Hoag, who was wearing a seat belt, escaped unharmed, and no other vehicles were involved in the crash.

The tractor-trailer sustained minimal damage.

The accident caused a temporary reduction in the normal flow of traffic for public safety reasons.

The scene was managed with the cooperation of the Vermont State Police, the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles, Killington Fire Department, Regional Ambulance Service, and TowAway Towing and Recovery.

Traffic was restored to normal as the agencies worked swiftly to clear the roadway.
