The Chevrolet Silverado’s driver, Jake Sessions, 20, of Essex, sustained multiple injuries from the accident and was transported to Fletcher Allen Health Care by St. Michael’s College Rescue, according to reports from the police and fire departments.

Fire Chief Ken Morton said it appeared Sessions became nauseous while driving north on Oak Hill Road and lost control of the vehicle. After crashing into numerous shrubs and trees, the truck sustained heavy front-end and back-end damage.

“The truck was absolutely trashed,” Morton said.

Fire crews and emergency responders extracted Sessions from the vehicle by removing the driver-side and passenger-side doors.

Twelve firefighters responded to the call, which came in at 7:47 a.m. In a press release, Williston Police said the accident remains under investigation. Police do not believe alcohol was a factor.

    almost 3 decades ago when williston started it’s development review process the public works section was pushing for a wider roadway typical for residential streets. The town adopted 30 ft widths vs 24ft. That’s 6/24 (30%) additional impervious area and runoff that needs to treated before flowing into ALLEN BROOK. The town and selectboard have indicated a lack of interest to reach out and help communties like mine that have had expired stormwater permits for more then a decade. Its always been a wait and see, well I see where this headed now.
