Ice causes rollover on Route 7

On Jan. 10, at approximately 4:29 a.m. the Vermont State Police responded to a single vehicle roll over with no injuries on US Route 7 just south of Oxbow Road in Pittsford, Vt. Upon arrival Troopers observed a Red 2003 Jeep Liberty on its roof in a ditch off the west side of the roadway. The operator was Sara Putnam, age 52 from Brandon, Vt. The Jeep sustained damage to its roof, hood, windshield, and both front quarter panels.

The Vermont State Police conducted an accident investigation and found that Putnam was driving too fast for roadway conditions as the road was covered in a thin layer of ice. Putnam was wearing her seatbelt.
