Posted October 12, 2018 10:31:17 Vermont, Hawaii has been on a hot streak for some time.
During this past weekend, the city saw a spike in car accidents.
As of Tuesday morning, the most recent data available, there were more than 4,000 motor vehicle accidents reported in the city, a whopping 22% increase from last week.
The most recent report from the Vermont Police Department, published Tuesday, shows a 2,932 vehicle crash total.
A couple days ago, a car crashed into a utility pole and flipped over in the area of East Main Street.
A person was also struck by a car, but that person is not expected to survive.
The other fatalities have yet to be determined, but the city’s Bureau of Transportation and Fire Prevention says that it is investigating at least eight crashes involving people who were not wearing seatbelts.
While the city is currently working to determine the exact cause of the crashes, many believe it is due to people riding with too much power in their cars.
A few days ago in the Vermonters community, a group of friends were visiting a restaurant, when they saw a car coming toward them and started to scream in fear.
The driver of the car, who was a man in his 20s, fled the scene.
He has not been caught.
