LOWELL — A Vermont State Police trooper responding to an emergency call crashed her Ford Explorer police cruiser in Lowell on Sunday.

  1. I see her driving. She drove past me as well over 100mph. She should get a careless and negligent operation. I’m sorry but speed is the factor. Law shouldn’t be any different for them then the citizens. Cops need to be held accountable for their mistakes.

  2. Yea they won’t get her for going to fast. They like to hold cops above the laws that civilians get held accountable for. It’s bull shit really. I almost wish she would totaled that cruiser.
