into husband’s car
STAMFORD — A Massachusetts woman crashed into her husband’s car while both were driving on Main Street in Stamford on Sunday, which slightly injured one of the couple’s children, according to Trooper Lauren Ronan of the Vermont State Police.
In a press release, Ronan said Clifford Paige, 39, of Rowe, Mass., was driving a 1994 Honda Civic on Main Street in Stamford around 1 p.m. His wife, Mary Paige, also 39, was driving behind him in a 2005 Ford Focus.
Ronan said police believe the crash happened because Clifford Paige slammed on his brakes while arguing with his son. Mary Paige was unable to stop in time to avoid a collision with the rear of the Civic.
The crash caused extensive damage to the front end of the Focus and caused the Civic to hit a guard rail and suffer extensive damage. Both the cars, which Clifford Paige owned, were destroyed.
The couple have eight children and four were in one car while the other four were in the other car. All of the family members were wearing their seat belts but one child was taken to North Adams Regional Hospital in Massachusetts to be treated for a small abrasion. The child was released a short time later, Ronan said.
Clifford Paige was issued a ticket for stopping on the roadway.MORE IN This Just InTOMORROW'S HEADLINES TODAY: Two fires, one in West Rutland and the other in Middletown Springs, keep firefighters busy, sports and update on robbery at Jenny Wren's in Springfield. 0News Editor Alan Keays, staff writer Darren Marcy and Sports Editor Bob Fredette discuss some of...
