A 54-year-old Georgia man is dead this morning after a four-car collision on Essex’s Susie Wilson Road around 8 a.m., police said.

The male, whose name is being withheld pending family notification, was transported to the University of Vermont Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased, Essex police reported.

“It is undetermined at this time if the operator died as a result of the collision,” a press release said.

The four-car crash partially closed the road until 9:40 a.m., and all vehicles were removed from the scene by tow truck, the release said. No other operators were injured.

Two good Samaritans helped at the scene until emergency personnel arrived, and Essex Rescue, Essex Town and Essex Jct. fire departments assisted with life-saving efforts and traffic control.

Police are still investigating the crash and ask anyone who witnessed it to contact EPD at 878-8331.
