A tragic story out of Killington, Vermont on Route 4, as three people were killed and four sent to the hospital when a tractor trailer hit an SUV head on.
Police say the crash occurred around 2:15 PM as a result of the poor road conditions brought on by Tuesday’s snow and freezing rain in the morning. Vermont State Police responded to near Shady Knoll on Route 4 to find a 2016 International tractor trailer and a 2009 Cadillac Escalade damaged after a head on collision, which killed three occupants of the SUV, including the driver and two passengers.
Three more passengers were transported to Rutland Regional Medical Center for treatment. 41-year old Lashawn Jones was identified as the driver of the tractor trailer and the names of the occupants of the SUV, including the deceased, have yet to be released, pending notification to family members.
A section of Route 4 was closed as part of the crash examination and was reopened around midnight Tuesday night.
