All OK after three-car collision in Bristol


Vermont State Troopers at the New Haven barracks said no one was hurt in a three-way crash Saturday near the Bristol Country Store on Vermont Route 116.

The accident happened at approximately 6 p.m. 

The state police news release said Peter Diminico, 69, of Bristol, was travelling south in the rain on Route 116 and was attempting to make a left-hand turn into the parking lot of the Bristol Country Store when he failed to yield to another vehicle traveling north at approximately 50 mph.

Diminico’s Toyota Tacoma struck the second vehicle, a Volkswagen Golf driven by Jessica Goerold, 33, of Hinesburg, police said. As a result of the collision, Goerold’s vehicle then hit a Subaru Forester that was parked at nearby gas pumps in the parking lot of the store. The Forester belonged to Stacie Macrae, 39, of Burlington, police added.

There were no injuries reported in the collision, police said. All three drivers were wearing seatbelts at the time. Neither alcohol nor drugs appear to have been a factor, police said.

Police issued Diminico a ticket for vehicle turning left. Bristol Police and Fire along with Middlebury Rescue assisted state police at the scene.
