Jeremy Michaud Death – Police say that a Troy man died in a single-car accident when his truck’s brakes failed as he turned a corner, causing him to drive into a hillside. The victim has been identified as Jeremy Michaud, a resident of Troy, New Hampshire. According to reports, 35-year-old Jeremy R. Michaud passed away from injuries sustained in Dover, Vermont on Tuesday, April 18, 2023. Jeremy was a wonderful husband, father, son, uncle and friend. He touched the lives of all those around him.
How did the crash happen?
Tuesday morning, just before 9 a.m., Jeremy was driving a 1993 Mack diesel truck owned by Keene well digging company Cushing & Sons. His truck went over the cliff on Dover Hill Road at the intersection with Taft Brook Road. “It’s still under investigation, but a preliminary report shows the apparent loss of brakes while heading down the road,” Johnson said Wednesday morning. “Going into the sharp curve is when he went off the roadway and struck the trees.”
Witnesses reported hearing Jeremy blow the air horn of the vehicle before driving off the road, which police believe was to inform oncoming vehicles he had lost control of the truck. “We’re assuming he died on impact,” Johnson said. “… [The crash] did damage guardrails that were there because it was a sharp curve. And he hit some pretty good-size trees, but none had fallen.”
He said that the road would be stopped until about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday so that the accident could be looked into and the car could be taken away. The Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles, which investigates some car accidents in the state, is looking at the car to find out why it lost its brakes. The East and West Dover Fire Departments, Wilmington Fire Department, Deerfield Valley Rescue, Ace Automotive, Dover’s town road crew, and the Vermont DMV all helped the Dover cops when they came to help.
