RANDOLPH — A 77-year old Brookfield, Vt., woman has been cited to appear in Orange County criminal court after she is alleged to have fatally hit a pedestrian with her car and left the scene of the accident last year.
Elizabeth Templeton is scheduled to be in Orange County Superior Court in Chelsea on Feb. 23 at 8 a.m. to answer to a charge of leaving the scene of an accident with death resulting, Vermont State Police said Wednesday, following its investigation of the Oct. 16 incident.
As previously reported, Brenda Flint, a 44-year old controller at Vermont Technical College and Community College of Vermont and member of the Brookfield Selectboard, was walking on the road near her home in Brookfield when police say she was struck by a car driven by Templeton.
Flint was discovered gravely injured and unconscious by a Vermont State Trooper and flown to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, where she died later that day.
Police investigators traced car parts at the scene of the incident to a 2013 Subaru Outback owned by Templeton, a neighbor who resides on same road as Flint and on which the incident occurred.
Flint’s LinkedIn page indicates that, in addition to being an associate controller of the Vermont State College system, she had previously worked as a staff accountant at Vermont Technical College and, before that, she had been a staff accountant for 10 years at engineering firm DuBois & King in Randolph.
