Vermont Man Crashes 2 Trucks, Tries To Tow Them With An ATV, Gets DUI Charge

POMFRET, Vt. (AP) — Vermont State Police say a 48-year-old man drove his pickup truck off the road, piloted another off the road trying to pull the first one out and then drove an ATV, all while intoxicated.

Police on Thursday said Dwayne Fenlason was charged with driving under the influence after the Nov. 30 incident in Pomfret.

They say Fenlason drove his truck off the road Sunday evening then went home to get his other pickup to haul out the stranded vehicle. He was on his way back when the second truck ended up off the road. He went home again and got his ATV to try to pull out the trucks.

Police say his blood alcohol content was 0.30 percent, nearly four times the legal limit of 0.08 percent.

It could not immediately be learned if he had a lawyer.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
