No injuries as car drives into tent at Dorset market
DORSET — No one was injured when a car attempting to park at the Dorset Farmers Market instead crashed through a wooden frail fence and into a tent on Sunday, Vermont State Police said.
According to a state police news release, at about 2 p.m. on Sunday, a BMW driven by Ivan Isakov, 45, of Brooklyn, N.Y., went through fence and narrowly missed pedestrians at the market, held near H.N Williams Store on Route 30.
Photos provided to the Journal show the vehicle nearly clipped a utility pole before plowing into a tent in the market.
State police said operator error was apparently a factor in the incident, and no citations or summons for a court appearance were issued as a result. According to Trooper Thomas Stange, it appears that the vehicle was in the wrong gear at the time of the incident.
Dorset and East Dorset firefighters assisted at the scene, state police said.
