Severe crash on I-89 sends one child in helicopter to hospital

A severe crash involving a minivan and a pickup towing a trailer resulted in severe injuries to a girl from Lebanon, N.H. Wednesday, and shut down traffic on southbound I-89 for several hours just north of Randolph.

State Police responded to the call of a serious injury accident on I-89 southbound at around 2:30 p.m. and found Randolph Fire Department crews already on the scene at mile marker 31.

A Toyota minivan driven by Tamera Dubuque, 35, of Lebanon, N.H., had drifted into the breakdown lane and hit a 2010 Toyota Tacoma with a trailer driven by Jonathan Bischof, 59, of Jamaica, Vt., police said. Two young passengers in the minivan were injured; one of them, a girl, was taken to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Centery in the DHART helicopter with serious injuries, police said.

The crash caused ‘significant damage to the front end, passenger side’ of the minivan, police said.

VTrans shut down the exit 5 onramp for at least 90 minutes.
