2-car crash snarls traffic on Route 7 in Charlotte – WCAX

CHARLOTTE, Vt. (WCAX) – A two-car crash backed up traffic on Route 7 in Charlotte for about an hour Friday afternoon.
Authorities say the crash caused one of the cars to go into a utility pole, bringing wires down across the road just before 2:30 p.m. The driver of one of the cars was arrested for DUI drugs and taken to Vergennes Police for processing. There were no reported injuries.
Charlotte Fire Chief Justin Bliss says the stretch of road has its problems. “It’s a high-speed area. There are houses off of here and there aren’t many stop lights, so we do respond to crashes pretty frequently, not just here but all up and down our area of Route 7,” he said.
Some traffic was rerouted down Greenbush Road.
Crews from Green Mountain Power are working to repair the damage.
