State investigators released the identity of the driver in the fatal Route 2 crash in St. Johnsbury early Tuesday morning. The driver was Roy Hazlett, 66, of Waterford. Hazlett was driving a 10-wheel dump truck west on Route 2 at about 7:25 a.m. when the dump body began to rise. As the truck passed the entrance to the entrance to Fairbanks Scales plant on its way into town the elevated dump caught communication lines that crossed the road overhead. The truck then left the right side of the road and overturned in the adjacent ditch. DMV inspectors state preliminary investigation suggests Hazlett may have suffered a medical event, but the investigation is ongoing.
