Vernon – Bouncing Tire Accident
A truck driver was charged in Vernon for negligence and making false statements.
31-year-old Thomas Fraser was just charged in connection to a May 20 incident where two motorists were injured. The accident occurred in the area of 700 Talcottville Road at approximately 9:00 p.m. Fraser was driving a tractor-trailer when a tire flew off his vehicle, hitting a Subaru that was traveling on the southbound side of the road. The hit damaged the vehicle, while its two occupants sustained minor injuries. Instead of staying at the accident scene and waiting for authorities, Fraser left the area. He was confronted by a witness who followed him to an apartment complex nearby but just continued driving his vehicle. He is now facing several charges related to the incident.
