NORTH BENNINGTON — A Shaftsbury man was cited for driving under the influence after the SUV he was driving collided with a utility pole on Wednesday afternoon in a crash that police said left a child passenger uninjured.
According to Vermont State Police, Trevor D. Marshall, 33, was traveling east on Route 67 in a Hyundai Sante Fe when the vehicle went off the road and struck a utility pole about a half mile east of the New York state line.
“When this crash occurred, Marshall had a child passenger in the vehicle,” troopers said in a news release. “At the time of investigation, the child was reported to be uninjured.”
Marshall showed signs of alcohol impairment and was taken into custody, according to police. Marshall was cited with second offense driving under the influence, reckless endangerment and gross negligent operation of a motor vehicle.
Members of local fire departments responded to the crash scene.
The collision snapped the pole and left it hanging by attached wires. A crew with Green Mountain Power responded and replaced the pole.
Marshall was ordered held on $5,000 bail at Marble Valley Regional Correctional Center in Rutland. Marshall is scheduled to be arraigned on charges in Vermont Superior Court Bennington Criminal Division on Thursday.
