Man charged in Pittsford crashJune 25,2013Man charged in crash
PITTSFORD A Forestdale man was injured and will face a criminal charge from a crash on Route 7 Sunday afternoon, according to Vermont State Police.
Lucas Manchester, 33, was driving a 2000 Chevy S10 pickup north through the middle of town just before 5 p.m. when he left the roadway and crashed into a guard rail, police said.
Manchester, who was wearing his seat belt, cut his head during the crash and was taken to Rutland Regional Medical Center for what police said was a minor injury.
He was also issued a criminal citation to appear in court next month to answer a charge of careless and negligent operation after a witness to the crash told police Manchester was driving at a high rate of speed.
Police say alcohol is believed to be a contributing factor in the crash but no drunken driving charge has been brought. The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact state police at 773-9101.MORE IN This Just In
