Police: 1 dead after fatal crash in Bridgewater

Posted: Updated:
BRIDGEWATER, Vt. -

One person has died in a fatal vehicle crash in Bridgewater.

State police say three cars collided by Pearson Road at 7:45 a.m.

They say at the time of the crash there was freezing rain and the road was partly covered in ice.

They say the driver of the first car lost control on a curve and crossed the center line into the path of a tractor-trailer. The truck swerved to avoid her and hit another car head-on.

The driver in the third car, a 62-year-old from Hartford, Vermont died at the scene. No one else was seriously hurt.

It took nearly six hours to re-open the road. The crash is still under investigation.
