SHOREHAM, Vt. -- A 15-year-old Williamstown, Mass., girl taking part in a bike tour suffered a broken pelvis after an alleged drunk driver struck her and another cyclist last Sunday, Vermont State Police said.
A press release states that shortly before 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, a vehicle driven by Brian Miller, 54, crossed into the eastbound lane, where it struck multiple bicyclists.
In addition to the juvenile who was injured, Martin Veit, 35, of Moretown, Vt., suffered head trauma, multiple fractures, and internal injuries, the release states.
The cyclists were reported to have been taking part in Tour De Farms, an organized bike tour.
The release states the vehicle suffered "substantial damage" to its front end, windshield and roof.
Both the young woman and Veit were transported to Porter Hospital in Middlebury for stabilization before being transferred to Fletcher Allen hospital in Burlington, the release states.
A spokesperson for the hospital had no information about the young girl Wednesday afternoon. The spokesperson did confirm that Veit was discharged, but could not confirm when.
The release states that Miller was also transported to Porter Hospital, where he was held for evaluation in the custody of Vermont Corrections at $50,000 bail. Miller was arraigned on a series of charges, including OUI, Monday afternoon at the hospital.
