Williamstown - A 38-year-old North Bennington, Vt. man was arrested on May 20 after a police initiated a Bridges Road traffic stop.

Arrest

James A. Tennyson of Scarcy Road was charged with driving after suspension of driver's license. During the investigation, police learned that an active arrest warrant for Tennyson was outstanding as well. The warrant involved additional motor vehicle charges, according to information provided by police.

Tennyson was released from police custody and is scheduled for a May 23 arraignment at the Northern Berkshire District Court.

Car Strikes Tree Head-On

Also on May 20, a 17-year-old Oblong Road youth was transported to North Adams Regional Hospital after a one-car crash.

Police said that Jason Silberstein was driving a 2004 Subaru southbound on Oblong Road near Sloan Road at about 7:24 p.m. when he lost control of the car. The vehicle veered from the road and struck a tree head-on.

Police said that Silberstein and a passenger, whose identity was not released, complained of pain at the accident scene and were taken to NARH by Village Ambulance Service.

The Subaru was totaled during the crash, police said. After an investigation Silberstein was found to be responsible for the crash, police said.

Vermont Vehicle Roll-Over

Pownal, Vt. - An 18-year-old Middle Pownal Road resident was taken to Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington, Vt. following an early morning May 21 roll-over crash along Route 7.

Sarah Darling was driving a 1995 maroon Ford Taurus northbound and had passed the Pownal View Barn when the vehicle left the road, struck and flattened two road signs, and rolled over onto its' roof before coming to a stop.

The accident was reported at about 4:44 a.m., said Pownal Valley Volunteer Fire Department Assistant Chief Joel Howard.

When firefighters arrived at the accident scene about four minutes later, they found the overturned vehicle was unattended.

Firefighters were preparing to search for vehicle occupants when Darling returned to the scene. Firefighters believe that Darling exited the vehicle and left the car to seek assistance. She was walking and talking as she approached the emergency responders at the scene and reported that she had been alone in the vehicle when it crashed, Howard said.

Members of the Bennington Police Department assisted at the crash scene. The Vermont State Police launched an investigation into the crash and were observed at the scene during mid-morning May 21.

The vehicle sustained significant damage and was towed from the roadside.

Darling was taken to SVMC by the Pownal Rescue Squad.

An investigation into the accident was continuing as of May 22. A decision about whether charges will be filed is expected at the conclusion of the investigation, according to Vermont state police.
