A Connecticut man and his juvenile sister escaped with non-life-threatening injuries after their vehicle went off an I-91 overpass, fell about 30 feet and landed on Route 25 below. The accident occurred on August 14 at about 2:44 p.m. James Murphy III, 21, of Darien, Conn., was traveling north on I-91 when police said he fell asleep. The vehicle left the east side of the interstate and continued traveling north in the median. The vehicle then traveled between the two bridges of the north and southbound lanes and over the embankment. The 2013 Jeep Wrangler struck the ground and rolled over the guard rail before coming to rest in the middle of Route 25. Murphy and his juvenile sister climbed out of their vehicle and were lying in the road when help arrived. They both sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. The Jeep was totaled. Vermont State Police, State Game Warden Scott, Bradford Fire Department, Bradford Fast Squad, Upper Valley Ambulance, Fairlee Police Chief Briggs and Orford, N.H. Police Chief Backus all responded to the scene.
