Vermont State Police On May 6th, 2022 at approximately 1235 hours the Vermont State Police received a report of a two vehicle crash involving a farm tractor towing a piece of farm equipment and a motorcycle. Shortly after the initial call was received a Franklin County Sheriff’s Deputy arrived on scene and advised that the operator of the motorcycle, Rodney Hall (age 71 of Milton), was deceased.  

Subsequent investigation revealed that the tractor appeared to pull into the roadway in front of the motorcycle which was traveling west on Route 105.

The operator of the tractor, Jason Kennison (age 38 of Enosburg), was transported to the St. Albans Barracks on suspicion of DUI.

Troopers from the St. Albans Barracks are working with the Franklin County State’s Attorney’s Office on possible criminal charges as the investigation is still ongoing. Members of the Vermont State Police Crash Reconstruction Team responded to the scene to assist with the investigation. Additional information regarding criminal charges will be released at the conclusion of the investigation.
