According to an earlier press release issued by the Warren Police Department, a bicyclist was traveling Route 19, Brimfield Road in Warren, when “he had come across a vehicle off the road, and was unable to make contact with the driver.”
The bicyclist called 9-1-1, a call that reached the Rutland Regional Emergency Communications Center at approximately 6:23 p.m., police said. Members of Warren’s police, fire and EMS departments were dispatched to the scene, in the area of 1358 Brimfield Road.
