Knight, age 28, of Rochester, N.Y., had been traveling north on Old Coach Road when his vehicle veered off the roadway, hitting a tree nearly head-on. This caused extensive damage to the truck, a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500. Knight was seat-belted and not injured. Two passengers in the vehicle sustained injuries and were transported to the Rutland Regional Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries.
