BENSON — A 56-year-old man from Florida was involved in a crash in Benson yesterday.
The single-vehicle crash took place on Vermont Route 22A, north of North Cross Road, at around 5:30 a.m.

The vehicle continued north and collided with a large rock and trees.
Police say Dutervil came to a position of uncontrolled rest with the front of the unit in contact with trees along the roadside.
Police say nobody was injured.
State Police were assisted by members of the Benson Fire Department, Vermont Agency of Transportation, and the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles Enforcement & Safety Division.
