Deputy struck and run over by vehicle


One of our deputies was struck and run over by a vehicle today in Brattleboro. He is in stable condition and will undergo surgery. The Brattleboro Police Department is investigating the crash. The deputy was directing traffic as part of the ongoing construction work at Exit 2.

We would like to use this as an opportunity to remind people to be alert and mindful of personnel in construction zones, and to approach with caution when approaching emergency vehicles with flashing lights.

We would like to thank the Brattleboro Police, Brattleboro Fire, Rescue Inc, Vermont State Police, and DMV Commercial Truck Enforcement for their responses. We also would like to thank the community for their support and well-wishes.

Questions or information related to the crash may be referred to the Brattleboro Police Department.
