ST. JOHNSBURY — Two tractor-trailer units crashed in St Johnsbury yesterday.

The crash took place on US Route 2 near East Village Road at around 2:30 p.m.

According to the police report, a truck driven by Ralph Edson, 38, of Ryegate, stopped shortcoming over a hill on Route 2 for a passenger vehicle making a turn into a driveway.

The second truck driven by Victor Leary, 64, of Brunswick, CA, was following close behind and was unable to stop in time to avoid the collision.

Police say Leary’s tractor had enough damage to the front end to make it inoperable, and Edson’s truck sustained minor damage to its trailer.

Nobody was injured in the crash, and both vehicles were safely removed from the road.
