Driver cited with DUI No. 4 after March crash injured Milton woman

By MICHAELA HALNON

A man police say was involved in a multi-vehicle crash that injured a Milton woman in late March has been cited with DUI No. 4, Vermont State Police said in a press release.

The crash occurred in Charlotte around noon on March 31, police said, when 70-year-old Edward Woodruff of Westport, N.Y. crossed the centerline and sideswiped two vehicles while traveling southbound on Route 7. He later collided head-on with another northbound vehicle.

That operator, 22-year-old Ashley Francis of Milton, suffered a chest injury, a press release said. She was treated at the University of Vermont Medical Center; her 2007 Toyota Camry totaled.

A fourth vehicle attempted to avoid the crash but struck the back of one car. Another driver was stuck by flying debris as she traveled northbound, police said.

Route 7 was closed for two hours as a result of the crash, and traffic was detoured around the scene, the release said.

Police said a preliminary breath sample from Woodruff registered .077 percent BAC; he was processed at UVM Medical Center then for suspicion of DUI. A May 20 update from VSP reported Woodruff was cited for his fourth DUI offense as a result of the investigation; troopers also issued him a civil traffic ticket.

He is cited to appear in Chittenden Superior Court – Criminal Division on July 25.
