Police Log


Feb. 11

• At just past 10 a.m., the Vermont State Police responded to the report of a crash on Route 9, just east of Hughes Road in Marlboro. Troopers determined Martin F. DePaul, 39, of Argyle, N.Y., was traveling east at approximately 30 to 35 mph. As DePaul navigated around the sharp right curve, he lost control of his vehicle due to icy road conditions created by blowing snow. The wind was blowing light snow onto the roadway which created hazardous winter driving conditions. As a result of the loss of control, the vehicle went across the westbound lane of travel and over turned. The Wilmington Police Department, Deerfield Valley Rescue and the Marlboro Fire Department assisted at the scene. The vehicle was towed from the scene by Marlboro Collision and Towing.
