Rutland Crime Video: 27 Arrested In Drug Crackdown

Most of the 27 suspects are charged with actually selling drugs. A couple are only facing “aiding a felony” charges.

Crash Video Files: Eden, Vermont: Francis Valley And Shirlee Krajniak Killed In 2-Car Accident On Vermont 118; Michael Palchak Injured

A man and woman in one car were killed in this two-vehicle crash. A man driving the other car was injured.

Date: Thursday, December 19, 2013

Time: About 2 in the afternoon

City / County / State: Eden, Vermont

Address: Vermont 118, close to Knowles Flat Road

Victims Killed:

1. Driver Francis Valley was 68 years old and from Barton, Vermont.

2. Passenger Shirlee Krajniak was 53 years old and lived in St. Johnsbury, VT.

Victims Injured:

Michael Palchak is 51 and from Bakersfield, Vermont.

Cause:

Valley’s and Palchak’s vehicles collided in head-on fashion. The weather was apparently not severe at the time, but drunk driving is not suspected. Other than that, it is not clear what happened. But the Burlington Free Press reports that police said Valley was traveling north, and the collision occurred in the northbound lane. It sounds like they are saying Palchak crossed the center line. However, they did not expressly state that. So it is not clear whether police actually said that.

Criminal Charges?

There are no charges at this time.

Crash Video Files: Killington, Vermont: Enfield, NH’s Kyle Wilson Killed In Pedestrian Accident; Michael DeBellis Charged With Hit And Run

A man has been killed in a pedestrian accident in Vermont. Another man has been arrested and charged with a hit and run.

Date And Time: Sunday morning, December 8, 2013

City / County / State: Killington, Vermont

Address: Intersection of Mountainview and Killington Roads

Victims Killed:

1. Kyle Wilson was 26 years old and lived in Enfield, New Hampshire.

Victims Injured:

none

Suspect:

Michael DeBellis is 27 and from Killington.

Cause:

There is controversy over what caused this. Prosecutors say DeBellis had been drinking, but his lawyer says he was not drunk. The lawyer also contends that Wilson was standing in the middle of the road, but it is not really clear at this time exactly what happened. But regardless of these issues, the real issue has become why DeBellis left the scene of the accident. He will need a reason for this, and about the only defense is that he didn’t know he was involved in an accident.

Criminal Charges?

DeBellis is charged with felony hit and run. This is based on leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in death.
