NEWPORT, Vt. -

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.
