FAIRFIELD — A single-vehicle accident on Route 36 led to the hospitalization of a local man and the discovery of his suspended license and an active arrest warrant, authorities said.

The incident occurred at 12:25 p.m. on Jan. 8 when Corey Mott, 36, of Enosburg, lost control of his 2007 Toyota Corolla.

According to the preliminary investigation, Mott was traveling westbound on Rt 36 when his vehicle crossed the eastbound lane and exited the road on the south side, striking an embankment and overturning.

Mott, who was wearing his seat belt, sustained what are believed to be minor injuries and was transported to the Northwestern Medical Center (NWMC) for treatment.

During the investigation, it was discovered that Mott’s driver’s license was criminally suspended.

Furthermore, Mott had an outstanding arrest warrant for failure to appear in court on Dec. 18 for charges of Grand Larceny and Possession of Stolen Property.

After being cleared by a judge due to his hospitalization, Mott was cited to appear in court on Jan. 16 for the outstanding charges.

He will also face a court date on Feb. 20 for the suspended license violation.

State troopers, along with Amcare Ambulance Service and Fairfield Fire Department, responded to the scene.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation, and the road conditions at the time were wet with light traffic under cloudy skies.

Mott’s vehicle was totaled with damage to all sides resulting from the overturn.
