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.
