Coventry, VT — Vermont State Police say speed and alcohol were likely factors in a head-on crash Saturday that injured three people, one critically.
Police say Landon Outlaw, 40, of Texas, was northbound on VT Route 14 when he lost control of his 2018 Toyota Tacoma near US Route 5. Outlaw’s vehicle crossed over the median and hit an older model pickup truck driven by Jeremy Weber, 21, of Charleston, VT.
The collision caused Weber’s vehicle to become engulfed in flames. Weber, a passenger, Taylor Schneider, 21, and Outlaw were pulled out of the vehicles by bystanders.
They were transported to the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center for treatment. Schneider sustained life-threatening injuries.
Investigations are ongoing but alcohol and speed are suspected factors. Anyone with information is asked to contact Vermont State Police, Derby Barracks.
