Motorcycle collides with tractor resulting in serious injury

On Sunday, Oct. 27 at 8:50 a.m. Cameron Steinmetz, age 24 from Rutland, was riding his 2007 Yamaha motorcycle north on Route 30 in Poultney. He was following behind a farm tractor, which he attempted to pass near the intersection of VT Route 30 and Saltis Rd.

The tractor, operated by David Saltis age 27 from Poultney, took a left hand turn, resulting in Steinmetz colliding into the tractor.

Poultney fire and rescue responded as well as members from Castleton PD and FairHaven PD.  The motorcycle was removed by Bruno's and Steinmetz was transfered to Rutland Regional Medical Center and then airlifted to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center where he was listed in critical condition.
