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.
Matthews said Mourad failed to slow down and the Forester sideswiped the Volkswagen as it was turning.
Both vehicles came to rest under their own power off the travel portion of the road. No injuries were reported.
Matthews said Townshend Fire and Rescue responded to the scene and Rod’s Mobil removed the vehicles.
