Car crashes into building
Williston Police, Fire and Rescue responded to AC Moore on 150 Retail Way March 20 regarding a report of a car that had crashed into the building. Police say the investigation revealed that a 2000 Mercury Sable station wagon driven by Carol B. Jennings, 71, of Vergennes, was backing out of a parking space in the center parking lot. She told police the accelerator stuck and the car accelerated backwards across the parking lot, struck a parked car, then jumped over a traffic island, striking a small tree and going over a large rock, according to police reports. The car then traveled across Retail Way, where it struck another parked car and hit the front of AC Moore’s building, coming to rest on top of a bollard, the report notes.
No one was injured in the crash, although the passenger in the station wagon was taken to Fletcher Allen Health Care as a precaution, according to the report. Both parked vehicles that were struck were unoccupied at the time. No pedestrians were struck. The crash remains under investigation, and several witnesses have come forward. If you witnessed the crash, Williston Police ask that you call the department at 878-6611.
•Bernard Miller, 29, of Essex was cited on charges of domestic assault, stalking, unlawful restraint in the second degree and disorderly conduct on March 17, according to a police affidavit.
Miller’s wife reported to police that Miller had threatened to take her children and she feared for her safety, according to the affidavit. An investigation revealed that Miller had allegedly put “spyware on her phone and hacked into her email,” had prevented her from leaving her home with her children in the past, would “constantly call, e-mail and text her” at her workplace, and had a “confrontation with her” at a local gas station on March 16 after which she didn’t want to go home, the affidavit states. The victim stayed at a friend’s house that evening; Miller allegedly found out where she was staying via the spyware and drove by the house, frightening her, according to the affidavit. On March 17, he appeared at her place of work and confronted her, put “his hands on her and stood in front of her while she was trying to enter the building,” according to the affidavit.
