SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - A single-vehicle crash on Interstate 89 in South Burlington has claimed the lives of two Vermonters.

It happened just after 6 a.m. Saturday, closing down the highway for several hours.

Police say Theodore Bowen, 32, of Essex Junction, was driving north when his car struck a guardrail, veered into the median, rolled and hit a tree. His passenger, Mechelle Martin, 45, of Colchester, also died at the scene.

This crash remains under investigation. Police say it’s too early to tell if speed or impairment were factors.
