LYNDONVILLE, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont police chief says he was brushed by a car during a torch run for Special Olympics Vermont.

The driver says she didn't know she was interrupting the run when she tried to cross a road Thursday. Sandra Raynor also says she didn't know 1 of the four men jogging was Lyndonville Police Chief Jack Harris, who she says slammed his hand on her car and asked her what she was doing. She says she was just trying to get across the road.

Raynor says there were no signs about the run and Harris was not in uniform.

Harris says Raynor took off, with her vehicle brushing his knees. She was stopped for careless and negligent operation a block later by Harris, who had jumped into a cruiser.
