The Brattleboro Fire Department and Rescue Inc responded to the scene, and Jones and a passenger were transported to Brattleboro Memorial Hospital.
Main Street was completely shut down for a short time so that EMS could get access to the vehicle and officers could conduct their investigation.
Once he was cleared by hospital personnel, Jones was arrested and transported to the Brattleboro Police Department, where he was processed as a DUI. Jones was also charged with Leaving the Scene of an Accident. Jones is scheduled to appear in Vermont Superior Court, Windham County Criminal Division on December 1 at 0800 hours to face the charges.
