Police are investigating a rollover
crash on Interstate 91 over the weekend involving the mayor of Newport.
Police say around 2 a.m. Sunday, Paul
Monette, 51, was heading north in Barton, when he lost control, entered the
median and flipped his car several times.
Monette is the mayor of Newport City. We have not been
able to reach him for a comment, but Vermont State Police confirmed Monday that
the mayor was the one involved in the crash. Police say speed and alcohol
appear to be factors, but the investigation is still underway and no charges
have been filed.
