Hydroplaning was the cause of a crash of Vermont State Trooper Cruisers on Saturday night. Police say the officers were responding were responding to a call when each vehicle traveled on to a flooded bridge near mile marker 21 on Interstate 91 in the town of Westminster. The troopers were unable to regain control of the cruisers before they struck and came to a final rest in the southbound shoulder.
Both troopers were taken to Brattleboro Memorial Hospital and released with minor injuries.
The cruisers sustained damages and I 91 southbound lanes were closed for a period of time to clear up the crash and divert the water.
