SHEFFIELD, Vt. (WCAX) - Vermont State Police are looking for two men who they say are connected to a UTV crash that killed a teenager last week.

Police now say the two UTVs involved were stolen.

Investigators say last Thursday, Samantha Henderson, 19, of Lyndon, crashed a Side-by-Side on Blake Pond Road in Sheffield. Henderson was pronounced dead at the scene.

She was not wearing a seat belt or helmet at the time of the crash.

Police say their investigation has revealed the UTV Henderson was riding and a second UTV were stolen from Roadside Motorsports in Williston.

Police believe Christopher DeGreenia, 33, of Sheffield, and David “Cane” Lauderbach, 38, are involved in the theft and the fatal accident.

They’ve already arrested Philip DeGreenia, 56, of Sheffield, for providing false information to police about the crash. He was taken into custody and released with a citation.
