Fatality on Route 4: Pedestrian hit by two cars

On Friday, Dec. 28, 2012, at approximately 5:18 p.m., members of the Vermont State Police from the Rutland Barracks responded to a report of a pedestrian vs motor vehicle crash on US RT 4 near the Cortina Inn in Mendon, Vt.

The pedestrian, Drury Morgan, age 45 from Mendon, was reported to have been struck by two vehicles while crossing US Route 4 and succumbed to her injuries at the scene. The operator of the second vehicle, Joseph Ferrara, age 50 from Huntington Station, NY, pulled over after the collision and immediately contacted the State Police.

Although still under investigation, alcohol and speed do not appear to be a factor for the operator of the second vehicle.

The first vehicle left the scene. A witness statement described the first vehicle as a dark colored, possibly green, station wagon or hatchback type vehicle similar to a Subaru with unknown registration. A witness statement further described possible damage to the front passenger side of the vehicle.
