MILTON, Vt. (WCAX) - One person is dead and another is seriously injured after a two-car crash in Milton.

It happened Wednesday afternoon near the Milton Diner on Route 7, not far from the intersection with Forbes Road.

Police say the cars collided head-on.

The driver, Lynn Evans, 72, who was headed north, was killed in the crash.

The other car, driven by Travis Jette, 28, who was traveling south, flipped down a steep ravine and rescue crews worked for 45 minutes to get him out. He was transported to the UVM Medical Center with serious injuries.

Right now, investigators believe Evans’ vehicle crossed over the center line hitting Jette’s vehicle.

No word yet on the exact cause of the crash.
