BETHEL, Vt. -- An 18-year-old Hartland woman was traveling in the wrong lane when her car struck and killed a Windsor couple on a motorcycle, said Lieutenant Ray Keefe of the Vermont State Police.
Keefe said Friday that the 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Jessica Johnston was driving was "entirely in the wrong lane" when it hit the 2004
Johnston was listed in fair condition at the hospital.
Keefe said Johnston veered into the southbound lane of Route 5 on a sharp curve, as the Stones approached.
"She was so far over that the motorcycle struck the right-front tire of her car. The motorcycle was right in the middle of its own lane, where it should have been. There's no culpability here on the part of the Stones," he said.
Police have not decided whether charges will be filed.
Richard and Veronica Stone, both 58, were married shortly after they graduated in 1963 from Windsor High School. They were planning to retire in the next couple of years, according to a family friend.
Veronica Stone was a second-grade teacher at Bluff School in Claremont, N. H. Her husband was a prison work crew supervisor for the Vermont Department of Correction. They had three daughters.
Jessica Johnston is a senior at Hartford High School.
