WALTHAM, Vt. -
Police say Addison County Representative Gregory Clark stepped out of his car to clear his windshield, when a car hit and killed him.
Emergency crews surrounded a Subaru which police say was driven by Vermont State Representative Clark.
"He pulled over to clean his windshield because of ice in terms of how much visibility he had it's hard to know," Vermont State Police LT Gary Genova said.
State police said Clark had stopped on Route 7 in Waltham near the intersection of Route 22A on Friday.
They said Clark's car was parked in the shoulder but still in the travel lane.
This is how police say it happened. Police say Clark parked his Subaru in the middle of the road and got out to clear his windshield.
That's when they say another driver stopped to tell Clark he had a hard time seeing Clark and suggested he pull further over.
Police say Clark then moved his car partially into the shoulder and got out again to clean his windshield.
While the other driver offered to help.
Trooper say that's when a driver in a silver Honda traveling southbound hit Clark.
Clark was taken to Porter Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Police say the Good Samaritan who had stopped to help Clark was also hurt and taken to the hospital. They're still investigating how he was hurt during the crash.
Police say that reckless driving doesn't appear to be a factor in this accident and that it was only the sun that caused the driver not to see Representative Clark.
Police say the driver of the silver Honda was unharmed and as of right does not face any charges.
"We're in the process of interviewing witnesses. We do know the roadway was clear. The sun does appear to be a factor though," LT Genova said.
