Vt. police: Driver tried escaping, crashed twice

Posted: Updated:

CAVENDISH, Vt. (AP) - Vermont police say when they tried to pull over a woman, she didn't comply, crashed twice, fled on foot and hid in a brook, behind a pile of snow and ice.

Police say Elizabeth Stuart of North Pomfret did not stop when troopers activated their siren on Route 131 in Perkinsville. She eventually lost control of her vehicle while police were in pursuit and crashed into the guardrails before stopping in the road. According to police, she refused to exit the vehicle and began driving. She crashed again, this time into a telephone pole.

Police said Stuart fled and hid in a brook, behind a snow pile, before they located her.

Stuart received hypothermia treatment. Police say she was cited for leaving the scene of an accident and other violations.
