A local sheriff's department in New York reported that two individuals were killed in a head-on collision on Route 25 in Granville. According to a witness, the crash occurred around 5:15 a.m. on Aug. 15. The two vehicles, a gray Dodge Intrepid and a red Chevy Camaro, were in flames when police arrived to the accident. Both drivers were dead at the scene and could not be immediately identified. Both vehicles had Vermont license plates. The drivers were taken in for autopsy that may provide clues as to their identities.
According to the witness, the Intrepid attempted an illegal pass of her vehicle on a hill with a double yellow line. The Camaro, coming in the opposite direction, collided with the Intrepid while it was still in the process of passing. The force of the impact spun the Camaro and forced the Intrepid off the road. The vehicles apparently caught fire after the crash.
