Vermont driver released after Quebec walker fatal

BEECHER FALLS, Vt. (AP) -- Quebec police say they have released from custody a Vermont truck driver whom they believe may have been involved in a fatal pedestrian accident in a Canadian town about 15 miles north of the border.

Quebec Provincial Police spokeswoman Sgt. Aurelie Guindon (Ore-AH'-lee GWIN'-don) says the name of the driver will not be released unless criminal charges are filed. There's no word on that.

The Burlington Free Press ( ) reported it's unclear if the driver knew he hit the pedestrian.

The driver was stopped shortly after the crash at the border crossing in Beecher Falls, Vermont, by U.S. agents.

Guindon says the victim, 19-year-old Anthony Labranche, was walking after celebrating St. Jean Baptiste Day, a public holiday in Quebec.
