A fiery two-vehicle car accident in the early morning hours of Aug. 15 left two people dead along Route 25 in Washington County. The vehicles involved possessed Vermont license plates, but the identities of the drivers have yet to be confirmed by authorities.
According to information released by the Washington County Sheriff's Department, the car accident occurred at approximately 5:15 a.m. when a 2003 Dodge Intrepid traveling eastbound along Route 25 collided head-on with a 1991 Chevy Camaro heading westbound. Witnesses told police that the Intrepid was attempting to pass another vehicle across the double lines along an uphill section of road and apparently could not see the Camaro heading the opposite direction in the westbound lane. The crash resulted in both vehicles being engulfed in flames and flung across the roadway.
