TOWNSHEND — No injuries were reported after a two-car crash on Saturday afternoon on Route 30.
In a press release, Vermont State Police Trooper James Matthews said Sher Ward, 64, of Townshend, was driving a 2003 Volkswagen north on Route 30 around 2:30 p.m. on Saturday and planned to make a left turn. Lydia Mourad, 60, of West Roxbury, Mass., was also driving north in a 2003 Subaru Forester.

Both vehicles came to rest under their own power off the travel portion of the road. No injuries were reported.
