Gibbs is ticketed over crash
DUXBURY (AP) -- The Republican candidate for Vermont secretary of state has received a traffic ticket following an accident in which he drove his car into a ditch.
Police report that 34-year-old Jason Gibbs fell asleep at the wheel at 12:45 a.m. Sept. 17 near his home in Duxbury.
Gibbs says the accident happened after he was campaigning at the Tunbridge World’s Fair, a meeting of Washington County Republicans and at 24-hour convenience stores on his way home.
The Burlington Free Press reports that Gibbs was ticketed for failing to stay in his lane.
The accident was not reported until the following morning, when Gibbs’ car was spotted by a passing school bus driver.
