STOWE, Vt. (WCAX) Two people are dead after a crash between a car and a logging truck near the intersection of Route 100 and Randolph Road in Stowe.

It happened at about 12:15 p.m. Thursday.

Four hours later, there were still fire trucks, ambulances and investigators there.

The car was left in the grass next to Route 100. The driver and passenger of that car died before police got to the scene.

The driver of the logging truck was not injured.

Stowe Police Chief Donald Hull says it's too early to tell how the crash happened, what factors may have played a role in the crash or who is at fault.

"Stowe Police, Stowe Fire and Stowe Rescue were dispatched. We got here. Upon arrival, we determined it was a double fatality. While we reconstruct the accident, our Stowe investigators are working on the investigation part of the accident," Hull said.

Vermont State Police and DMV truck inspectors are also helping to figure out what happened.

The chief is asked drivers to avoid Route 100 by Randolph Road Thursday evening, saying it could be closed until 9 p.m. or 10 p.m.

Police have not yet released the names of the victims in that crash.
