Police use DNA evidence to charge man with fleeing crash scene in Jericho

JERICHO — A 30-year-old man from Essex was arrested on multiple charges following a crash that occurred in Jericho late last year.

On December 30, 2021, authorities say they were notified of a single-vehicle crash at the intersection of Vermont Route 117 and Barber Farm Road.

Police say they located a vehicle that had gone off of Vermont Route 117 and hit a utility pole.

The driver fled from the scene prior to first responders arriving.

Speed and alcohol impairment was deemed to be contributing factors in this incident.

Following a continued investigation and the use of DNA evidence with the assistance of the Vermont Forensic Lab, Anthony Seagroves was found to be the driver at the time of the collision.

On September 23, 2022, Seagroves was located by the South Burlington Police Department and arrested on several unrelated arrest warrants.

Seagroves was also issued a citation to appear in court on November 29 to answer to the charges of negligent operation, leaving the scene of an accident, and driving while their license was suspended.
