Youth Killed in One-Car Crash

Stamford, Vt. - A 20-year-old North Adams youth was killed during a May 25 one-car crash that also sent a 19-year-old North Adams female to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield.

Vermont State Police said that city resident Charles Lowe died from injuries received when a southbound 1988 Chevrolet Beretta being driven by 23-year-old Eric Dubreuil of North Adams veered off of the Route 8 and 100 roadway near Clough Road, traveled more than 1,000 feet and slammed into a utility pole situated off of the northbound lane.

Police said that the vehicle was traveling at an excessive rate of speed when Dubreuil failed to navigate a curve in the road and lost control of the vehicle. Alcoholic beverages were a factor in the crash, police said.

Vehicle passenger Sarah Novickie, 19, also of North Adams, was critically injured during the crash and was airlifted from the scene to the Berkshire Medical Center, police said. Police said that Novickie was in critical condition as of May 26 afternoon.

Dubreuil and passenger Bryan Albano, 19, of North Adams, received minor injuries during the crash, police said. Albano and Dubreuil were wearing seatbelts when the crash occurred, according to police, but whether Lowe and Novickie wore seatbelts is unknown.

The crash occurred at about 8:39 p.m., police said. The vehicle was totaled in the crash and was towed to the state police barracks in Shaftsbury, Vt. as part of an ongoing police investigation.

Vermont State Police Officer Eric Howley and Sgt. Michael Marvin are seeking any information about the crash and may be contacted at 802-442-5421.

Members of the Stamford Volunteer Fire Department, the Clarksburg Police Department, the Bennington County Sheriff's Department and the North Adams Ambulance Service assisted at the accident scene.

Stamford Volunteer Fire Department Chief Paul Ethier said that firefighters were at the scene until about 12:30 a.m.. State police investigators were at the scene well into the early morning May 26 hours and spent several hours at the crash site later in the day during May 26.
