Delivery Truck Shears Off Pole in Stamford

Staff Reports

STAMFORD, Vt. — A delivery truck driver was taken to Berkshire Medical Center's satellite emergency facility in North Adams, Mass., on Tuesday after shearing off a utility pole.

State police said Darrell Thomas, 43, of Albany, N.Y., was southbound on Route 100 at about 12:30 p.m. when he left the highway just south of Collins Road.

Investigation into the crash determined that Thomas' uniform delivery truck lost traction on the snow-covered roadway and exited the west side of the road. The truck flipped onto its right side and slid nose first into the pole, cutting it in two and causing the cab and cargo area to rip open.  

Thomas had been wearing his seat belt, which saved him from serious injury. However, he complained of neck and back pain and was taken to the emergency room.

The truck, a 2009 Freightliner, incurred extensive damage to the cab and cargo areas and had to be towed from the scene. Stamford firefighters provided traffic control; the highway was closed briefly while the truck was removed.
