• On Nov. 15 at approximately 2:36 p.m. responded to a three-vehicle crash on Route 7 in Pittsford just south of the Brandon town line. The trooper said his investigation showed that a moderate number of vehicles were traveling northbound on Route 7 when one of those vehicles turned left into a driveway, which slowed traffic. As the cars behind this turning vehicle reduced speed, police said a 2008 GMC Sierra driven by David Eastman, 36, of Leicester was traveling north several vehicles behind and he was not able to reduce his vehicle’s speed in time. Eastman’s truck crashed into the rear of a 2010 Chevy Malibu driven by Elizabeth Clark, 18, of Brandon, which forced her car to collide into the rear bumper of the 2008 Toyota TC driven by 27-year-old Timothy Crossman of Rutland. All of the vehicles were damaged, but no injuries were reported. The trooper said drugs and alcohol were not a factor in this crash.
