Vermont State Police have released additional information about a Saturday night crash on I-89 North. Troopers say the crash in South Burlington was a hit-and-run incident. Before first responders arrived on scene, Gonzalez had ran away from the scene.

Just before 10:00 p.m. that night, police say a Gonzalez was the driver of the Ford Focus that hit three other cars on the interstate. One of those three vehicles left the roadway and flipped onto its roof. The driver of that overturned car was not hurt, but the people in the two other cars that were struck were treated at UVM Medical Center for minor injuries.

Police are still investigating the crash, so if you have any more information, call the VSP Williston Barracks at (802) 878-7111.

The crash led the northbound side of the highway to close briefly while first responders could secure the scene.
