Two hurt when limousine and pickup truck collide in Shoreham

SHOREHAM — Two men are recovering from injuries sustained in a two-vehicle crash involving a limousine and a pickup truck on Route 22A in Shoreham during the afternoon of Sunday, Aug. 4.

Vermont State Police said their preliminary investigation indicates a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado pickup driven by Ian Swanson, 20, of Durham N.Y., was southbound on Route 22A with trailer in tow at around a quarter after 3 p.m. Police allege Swanson lost control of his vehicle and partially veered onto the shoulder of the southbound lane, then overcorrected, travelling across the centerline and into oncoming northbound traffic. A 2007 Lincoln Town Car driven by 37-year-old Shain Parker of Hinesburg tried to avoid the oncoming Silverado by swerving into the southbound lane, but both vehicles met head-on.

Swanson and his passenger sustained minor injuries, while Parker suffered a broken hand and head trauma, according to authorities.

Both drivers were wearing seatbelts, police said, and neither alcohol nor drugs played a factor in the collision.

Members of the Shoreham Fire Department and Middlebury Regional EMS assisted state police at the scene.
