COLCHESTER — A three-car collision occurred on I-89 southbound near mile marker 92 on June 4, causing significant vehicle damage but no injuries among the drivers, according to Vermont State Police.

The accident, involving drivers from Grand Isle and Burlington, happened at 7:47 a.m. under clear skies and on dry road conditions.

Troopers from the Williston Barracks responded to the scene where they found a chain-reaction crash.

Authorities determined that a 2011 Honda Pilot, operated by 48-year-old Ran Magar of Burlington, was rear-ended by an 18-year-old juvenile from Grand Isle driving a 2023 Toyota BZ4X.

The impact pushed Magar’s vehicle forward, and in turn, the juvenile’s car was struck by a 2016 Toyota Tacoma driven by 21-year-old Ethan Chamberlin, also from Grand Isle.

All operators were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.

The Tacoma sustained heavy front-end damage, the BZ4X was totaled, and the Pilot suffered heavy damage to the rear end.

Traffic on I-89 was reduced to one lane while the damaged vehicles were removed by Hendy’s Service Center & Towing.

The incident is under investigation, but no injuries were reported by the state police.
