Initial investigation concluded the vehicles collided head-on. Goodrich was transported to Rutland Regional Medical Center for minor injuries, and Greene was pronounced dead at the scene.
After a thorough investigation with the assistance of the crash reconstruction team, the state police determined and announced on April 26 that Goodrich was at fault for the crash, when his vehicle crossed into the southbound lane and collided with Greene’s motorcycle. Goodrich has been charged with Gross Negligent Operation, Death Resulting and has been issued a citation to appear in Rutland Superior Court; Criminal Division on May 9, 2016.
