4-year-old injured in crash


JAMAICA — Vermont State Police were dispatched to a reported two-vehicle crash with injury Friday morning in the area of Route 30 in Jamaica.

An investigation revealed that a 2010 Toyota Tacoma being driven by Michael McCormick, 34, of Sudbury, Mass., had crossed over the double yellow center lines after losing control on the ice/slush covered roadways. The Toyota subsequently collided with a 1998 International truck being driven by Caleb Simeon, 25, of Brattleboro.

Prior to state police arrival, all occupants of the Toyota were extricated and transported to Grace Cottage Hospital in Townshend for evaluation. It was learned that the rear passenger side occupant, 4-year-old Max McCormick of Sudbury, had sustained a severe head injury and was subsequently transported to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center where he is listed in critical but stable condition. All other occupants of the Toyota were uninjured.

Simeon remained on scene and denied having any injuries.

Due to this crash, Route 30 between Rawsonville and Jamaica Village was shut down for several hours. This investigation is ongoing and the Vermont State Police Crash Reconstruction Team assisted on scene. No other information was available by press time.
