ST. ALBANS — Vermont State Police say a St. Albans man has been rescued from the Missisquoi River after he lost control of his truck and went over an embankment.
Police said 22-year-old Colby Vezina was driving a pickup down a wet and slightly snow-covered road early Sunday when lost control of the vehicle in Sheldon.
The Burlington Free Press reported that police said the truck landed upside down, partly under water in the river.
Police said a homeowner who lives near the crash site quickly called 911 for help. First responders from Sheldon and Enosburg quickly arrived and pulled him from the river.
Police said Vezina suffered relatively minor hypothermia.
Police say it appears alcohol and speed contributed to the crash.MORE IN Vermont NewsMONTPELIER — Officials from the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources are going to be holding a...
