Joey Laquerre : Teen dies in ATV accident

Friends, classmates, and fellow racecar drivers are remembering Joey Laquerre, 17, of Washington, Vermont. He died this weekend following injuries he sustained in an all-terrain vehicle crash early Saturday afternoon.

Joey Laquerre was rushed to Central Vermont Medical Center in Berlin, where he died shortly after the 12:50 p.m. crash, Detective Lt. Lance Burnham said.

The teen was alone on his machine, but traveling with a group when he went off West Corinth Road near Dow Road and struck a tree, State Trooper Brandon Degre said.

Joey Laquerre was ejected off his vehicle, Degre said.

Both the Washington Fire Department and EMS responded to the scene and helped transport the teen to the Berlin hospital, where he later died, police said.
