4-car crash snarls traffic on Interstate 89

Posted: Updated:

A multi-car crash led to traffic nightmares along Interstate 89 near the Winooski River Bridge Wednesday night.

The crash happened just before 6 p.m Witnesses say Spencer Ritcher, 26, was speeding near the Winooski exit when he slammed into another car, causing a chain-reaction crash involving four cars.

Authorities had to stop drivers traveling north and redirect them using a southbound lane-- and that led to major congestion.

Richter was charged with negligent operation.

One individual was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
