Enosburg Student Killed In Crash

A standout high school basketball player in Enosburg has died following a two-vehicle collision.

Police say 17-year-old Brandon Gleason was a front passenger in a Jeep when it collided with a pickup truck Friday night on Route 105 in Enosburg.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office says Gleason later died at a St. Albans hospital. Gleason was a senior at Enosburg Falls High School and was the state's Mountain Division player of the year this past season.

Capt. Jay Sweeny of the sheriff's office tells WPTZ-TV that the driver of the pickup, 53-year old Patrick Prue of Franklin, was charged with driving under the influence, but that it hasn't been determined who was at fault in the crash.

Three other teenagers in the Jeep were treated for injuries.
