Vermont man faces for charges for striking Hinsdale woman with truck
KEENE — A Vermont man has been indicted by a Cheshire County grand jury for allegedly driving his truck into a Hinsdale woman in January.
David J. Sage, 53, of Vernon, Vt., was arrested on several charges by Hinsdale police in January.
Last week the grand jury indicted him on three felony charges: first-degree assault with a deadly weapon, reckless conduct with a deadly weapon and conduct after an accident. The Cheshire County Attorney’s office has also charged him with the misdemeanor charge of aggravated driving while intoxicated.
He is accused of striking Debbie Quinn, 52, of Hinsdale, with his GMC pickup truck in a River Court driveway Jan. 25.
Hinsdale police were called to respond to a River Court house around 1:15 a.m. for a report of a woman struck and pushed into a snowbank by a dark-colored GMC truck driven by her boyfriend.
While en route, police encountered a vehicle meeting that description on Route 10 and pulled it over, while also calling in Swanzey police to respond to the house.
Sage failed a field sobriety test, and his blood-alcohol content led to his arrest for aggravated driving while intoxicated.
Police said Sage and Quinn were boyfriend and girlfriend and that Quinn was at a party in Winchester at the time of the incident.
They were fighting outside the house when Sage allegedly struck Quinn with his truck, police said.
Quinn was seriously injured and was taken to Cheshire Medical Center in Keene and then transferred to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, where she was hospitalized for five days.
According to the indictments, Sage caused her serious bodily harm including broken ribs.
