SHAFTSBURY — A 33-year-old man from Massachusetts was arrested for DUI following a crash in Shaftsbury on Sunday.

Authorities say they were notified of a crash in the area of Ledgely Drive and Vermont Route 7A at around 1:45 a.m.

Two damaged vehicles were seen parked along the southbound lane of Route 7A.

According to the report, one of those vehicles was a 2017 Dodge Ram, driven by Joshua J. Ritcher, of North Adams, MA.

Police say they found that Ritcher had hit a vehicle that was parked along the road as he was headed south.
