Imagine looking up and seeing a large semi truck sliding directly for you, and you only have one way to go to avoid being hit. On February 3, that was the horrific sight one Vermont State Trooper saw when he nearly lost his life. In addition, 26-year-old, Edward Dones was driving his semi when his rig jackknifed on I-89. Likewise, Done's tractor trailer slid down the interstate and hit Vermont State Trooper, Darryl Cremo's unmarked car as well as two other vehicles.
As soon as Cremo saw the semi headed for him, he jumped over a nearby guardrail, and ran down a steep slope to avoid being hit. Done's semi crash caused a large amount of damage to all vehicles, and he was ticketed for driving too fast for conditions; further investigation showed he was also negligent in driving as well which is a criminal charge. Due to the criminal charge Done faces up to one year in jail/$1,000 fine.
