• At 12:27 a.m., Vermont State Police received a phone call about a silver Dodge sedan hitting the complainant's car in their driveway and then leaving. While traveling to the residence, dispatch received several 911 calls in regards to a woman knocking on the door of several residences on Morse Brook Road in Westminster advising she was in a car crash. Officers with the Bellows Falls Police Department assisted Vermont State Police in locating the vehicle crash scene and operator, Tanya Fisher, 30, of Westminster. Fisher initially denied operating the vehicle and provided false information to police. It was determined through investigation that Fisher was operating the vehicle when she lost control due in part to speeding and failing to maintain her lane on a sharp corner. Fisher crashed into a rock wall, causing significant front end damage to her vehicle and causing minor injuries to herself. Fisher was screened for driving under the influence before being transported to the Springfield ER for treatment. Fisher was issued a citation for driving under the influence, false information to law enforcement, leaving the scene of an accident, and negligent operation. Fisher was issued VCVC's for operating without insurance and operating with a suspended license.
