ST. JOHNSBURY — Two people were injured in a two-vehicle crash near the intersection of US-2 and VT-18 in St. Johnsbury on Wednesday, March 13.

Vermont State Police troopers responded to reports of the crash at around 5:15 p.m.

Upon arrival, they found a Ford Fiesta partially blocking the eastbound lane of VT-18 and a Honda Accord parked in a nearby lot.

Investigation revealed that both vehicles were turning eastbound onto VT-18 from US-2 when the operator of the Ford Fiesta, 37-year-old Jennifer Lane of St. Johnsbury, failed to yield to the Honda Accord, driven by a 19-year-old juvenile from Danville.

Lane’s failure to yield and merge properly caused her to strike the Honda Accord.

Following the initial collision, Lane’s vehicle continued eastbound off the roadway, down an embankment, and struck a fire hydrant and snowbank before coming to a final position of uncontrolled rest.

The juvenile operator was able to maintain her lane of travel and came to a controlled stop in the adjoining parking lot.

Lane sustained moderate head and neck injuries and was evaluated by CALEX Ambulance Service on-scene before being transported to Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital (NVRH) by ambulance for further care.

The juvenile operator also sustained minor head and shoulder injuries and traveled to NVRH without assistance.

The Vermont State Police were assisted at the scene by the St. Johnsbury Fire Department, CALEX Ambulance Service, and Faufaw Towing.
