Police investigate a fatal crash in Woodstock on Route 4 on Thursday morning.WOODSTOCK — An 84-year-old Bridgewater woman was killed this morning in a crash on Route 4, according to Woodstock Police.
The crash occured near the Outtaquechee River just after 6 a.m. when a box truck driven by Timothy Farewell, 46, of Enfield Center, N.H., collided with a Dodge Neon driven by 84-year-old Norma Sawyer.
Sawyer was pronounced dead at the scene, police said, and a passenger in her car, Laura Robinson, 75, of Bridgewater, was injured and taken to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire.
Police didn’t release any information about Farewell’s condition or whether he was injured.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation although police say it appears that one of the vehicles crossed the center line leading to a head-on collision.
Woodstock Fire and Ambulance crews responded to the scene along with Department of Motor Vehicles Enforcement officers, a state medical examiner and the state police crash reconstruction team.
Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call Officer Mark Donka at 457-1420.
