JAMAICA, Vt. (AP) — Vermont State Police have released the name of the woman who died after her car skidded across a snow-covered southern Vermont road and crashed into a large SUV before catching on fire.
State police say 20-year-old Tressa McKinney of Windham was killed Monday afternoon in the town of Jamaica.
A preliminary investigation shows that McKinney’s car was traveling southbound on Route 30 when she lost control and the vehicle skidded across the road. It crashed into a northbound SUV driven by 48-year-old Gavin Scotti, of Greenwich, Conn.
Authorities say the car caught on fire shortly after the crash, and McKinney was pronounced dead at the scene.
Scotti and his 14-year-old passenger were taken to a hospital to be treated for minor injuries.
Police are investigating the crash.
