EAST DORSET — A collision between two tractor-trailers on U.S. Route 7 near the center of East Dorset blocked traffic and spilled milk across the busy highway Monday morning.
The crash happened Monday morning between 6:30 and 7 a.m. near the East Dorset General Store. It appeared that a truck carrying packaged dairy products was struck by a second truck traveling southbound, which traveled beyond impact, struck utility poles and came to rest in the nearby Battenkill River.
There were no immediate reports of injuries. Vermont State Police and multiple volunteer fire departments responded to the scene.
The Vermont Department of Public Safety, in a news release, advised motorists to expect delays in the area, or seek alternate routes.
Traffic was being diverted onto Mad Tom Road and Village Street.
