SUNDERLAND — A 30-year-old Arlington man was arrested following a two-vehicle crash in Sunderland yesterday.

The crash took place on Vermont Route 7A at around 1:28 p.m.

According to the report a 2012 Ford truck driven by Bradley Hughes, was headed north when it hit the rear of a 2010 Lincoln Town Car driven by John Sargent, 47, of Sunderland.

Sargent was stationary in the north lane in preparation to make a left turn.

Significant damage was done to both vehicles, police say.

Police say Hughes fled the scene prior to their arrival but was located a short time later by police and arrested.

He was in violation of court-ordered conditions of release that specified he must not operate any vehicles.

He was issued conditions of release by the Bennington County Superior Court to include that he appears before the court on August 24 to answer to the charges of leaving the scene of a crash and violation of conditions of release.
