Hampton supervisor home after accident

H ampton Town Supervisor Donald Sady is resting at home after being injured in a two-car crash Feb. 1 in Mendon, Vt.

 The other driver was killed in the accident, which took place on U.S. Route 4 near Wheelerville Road. The other driver, who is from out of state, lost control of his 2002 Dodge van and collided with Sady’s 2010 Toyota RAV 4. Both vehicles were destroyed.

 The van burst into flames and rescue personnel were unable to get to the driver, who died in the fire. Vermont State Police needed to use dental records to identify him as Patrick James Halloran, 35, of Minneapolis, Minn. 

 Sady’s wife, Darlene, said her husband spent two days in Rutland (Vt.) Regional Medical Center and has been resting at home since then. She said he has received a number of calls from friends and residents wanting to know how he was feeling.

 “He’s banged up, and he’s got stitches, but he is feeling better than he was,” she said.

 She said depending on what happens at the next doctor’s visit, he hopes to be able to attend the regularly scheduled town board meeting Wednesday, Feb. 16.

 State police said it was snowing, and the road was covered in snow when the driver was westbound and lost control of his van and it collided with Sady’s vehicle. The van was engulfed in flames, police said. The accident happened at 12:53 p.m.
