BARRE – One person is dead after a two-vehicle collision in Barre this morning at about 10:15. The top photo shows some pieces of a car that was struck by a tractor trailer at the intersection of Eagle Harbor Road and Route 31A. A Mercy Flight helicopter waits in a field by the intersection.

A passenger in the car, an elderly woman, was pronounced dead at the scene, and the driver, an elderly man, was taken to a nearby hospital by Mercy Flight.

Both roads are blocked off near the intersection while the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office completes an investigation of the crash.

An officer at the scene said the driver of a car was headed north on Eagle Harbor Road and attempted a left hand turn. The driver failed to yield to a tractor trailer that was eastbound on Route 31A. The truck then hit the car in front, and pushed it across a yard into a tree.

The truck driver wasn’t injured. 

Orleans Hub will have more on the story when details become available.

Mercy Flight takes the driver of the car to a hospital. The driver suffered serious injuries.
