Man airlifted after hitting logging truck
A Windsor man was airlifted with serious injuries Wednesday morning after his vehicle collided with a logging truck on Route 202 in Bennington.
Christopher Davies, 32, was driving his 2003 Ford F250 southbound at 6:30 a.m. when police believe he drifted into the northbound lane and struck a 1998 West Star logging truck, being driven by William Kimball Jr., 41, of Bennington, owner of Kimball Trucking and Firewood.
Police did not say why they believed Davies may have drifted into Kimball’s lane, though they did say road conditions were slick Wednesday morning.
Kimball was not injured in the crash while Davies was said to be in serious condition and transported by DART helicopter to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. According to Administrative Assistant Bethany Kent at Dartmouth Hitchcock late Wednesday morning, Davies’ name is on the list of names she is not authorized to release information on. By press time, Campbell said Davies had sustained head and leg injuries.
Kimball’s truck sustained minor damage to the wheel area of the driver’s side of his vehicle and Davies truck was a total loss.
The accident occurred near Rymes Propane and Oil. Bennington Police were assisted by Hillsborough and Antrim officers.
