BURLINGTON, Vt. -- Two people killed in a crash on Vermont​ S​​tate Route 100 in Stowe have been identified as a man and woman from New Britain, Stowe police said.

The Thursday crash, which occurred shortly after noon, shut down part of the roadway from Stowe to Morrisville for at least eight hours​, the Burlington Free Press reported.

A 2005 Honda Civic driven by Eugeniusz Adamczyk, 72, pulled out onto Vermont 100 from Randolph Road and was struck by a tractor trailer traveling north, an investigation found.

The truck was a Western Star with a tandem trailer attached carrying wood logs. 

Adamczyk and his passenger, Alfreda Adamczyk, 63, were pronounced dead at the scene. 

The tractor trailer was driven by Arnold Withers, 67, of Danville. He was not injured, Stowe police Chief Donald Hull said.
