Police: Bennington Firefighter causes serious accident

Posted: Updated:

Police say a Bennington firefighter caused a crash that seriously injured a woman and his lack of appropriate eyewear may be to blame.

The crash happened around 5 p.m. on West Road in front of the Bennington Rural Fire Department.

Police say Gregg Barr, 22, was driving a brush truck, and as he turned left into the station, he cut off Kimberly Hathaway, 54. Her motorcycle collided with the side of the fire truck.

Barr was ticketed for failing to wear corrective lenses while driving-- a requirement of his license.

A decision on possible criminal charges has not been made.
