A Bristol man was killed in a single vehicle crash on Route 7 in Charlotte early Saturday morning.

Police said Gregory Ouelette, 22, was driving his truck southbound near Claflin Farm Road at around 3:30 a.m. when he drifted into the lane of oncoming traffic, hit a guard rail, and rolled. Ouellette, who was not wearing his seat belt, was thrown from the vehicle.

The Williston Police Department, Charlotte rescue and the Charlotte fire department responded to the scene. Ouellette was transported to the University of Vermont Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

There were no passengers in the car. Police say weather and road conditions were clear.

According to an obituary from Brown-McClay Funeral Home, Gregory was born in Middlebury and had a great love of the outdoors and sports.

“He was a man of few words, but such a genuine soul and great friend.  He is loved tremendously and will be greatly missed,” the notice read.
