SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Police are revealing more about the people involved in a fatal crash that happened in South Burlington Friday.

The two-car, head-on crash happened around 3:45 a.m.

Police now say Adrian Moore, 29, crossed the center line into oncoming traffic on Shelburne Road Friday morning.

Moore smashed into Rebecca Ramsey, 58, of Shelburne. Moore wasn’t wearing a seat belt and died at the scene. Ramsey is recovering from her injuries at the UVM Medical Center. Police say her seat belt probably saved her life.

Investigators say Moore stole the car from Clymer Street in Burlington shortly before the crash. They say evidence shows he suffered from an opiate addiction. They’re waiting on a toxicology report.

Police say this information comes in the early stages of the investigation and is expected to further evolve.
