A Montpelier man walked away with a minor injury, and three cars were totaled in a crash that blocked Rte. 2 in Danville on Thursday, and police said was caused by icy road conditions.
According to police, Philippe Legendre, 75 of Gilead, Maine, was driving east on Rte. 2 near Dole Hill around 6:30 p.m. when he hit glare ice and spun out of control. Legendre hit west-bound cars driven by Melody Peterson, 42, of Danville, and Joshua Irons, 26, of Montpelier.
Irons was treated for a cut on his scalp at the scene. Police said there were high winds and snowy, near-whiteout conditions at the time of the crash, and that the investigation is ongoing. Anyone who witnessed the crash is asked to call Sgt. Denis Girouard or Tpr. Charles Winn, at 748-3111.
