A 54-year-old Georgia man is dead this morning after a four-car collision on Essex’s Susie Wilson Road around 8 a.m., police said.

Essex police said Kenneth Bonin died as a result of a medical event prior to the crash. Bonin was transported to the University of Vermont Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased, a press release said.

The four-car crash partially closed the road until 9:40 a.m., and all vehicles were removed from the scene by tow truck, the release said. No other operators were injured.

Two good Samaritans helped at the scene until emergency personnel arrived, and Essex Rescue, Essex Town and Essex Jct. fire departments assisted with life-saving efforts and traffic control.
