Barre Vt., police investigate assault on deputy sheriff

Police are looking for a man who fled the scene after nearly running down a sheriff’s deputy who was working on a traffic control detail. Barre police said the deputy was working a traffic detail at the intersection of Washington and Academy streets early Friday when a white Subaru Impreza came toward him and forced him to jump into his cruiser to avoid being hit. The car then hit a utility pole, and the driver jumped out and fled. The deputy tried to pursue the man, but was limited by his own injuries suffered when he jumped out of the way.
