The crash happened on Vermont Route 58 in the Village of Orleans.

Patrick Ferland, 69, of Barton, told police that while he and his young grandson were traveling west, a turquoise color older Honda sedan with a hatchback was traveling eastbound toward them and had crossed over the double yellow lines, into their travel lane and “side swiped” Ferland’s truck, causing damage.

The operator of the greenish blue or turquoise colored Honda that caused the damage took off without stopping and exchanging information or checking to see if any of the occupants had sustained any injuries.

The Honda left behind the driver’s side mirror as well as other parts that were located at the site of the crash.

Police say the Honda they are looking for, along with missing the driver’s side mirror, would have damage to the driver’s side front end.

Anyone with any information regarding this incident is being asked to contact Senior Trooper Amy Borsari of the VSP at 802-334-8881.
