Vermont State Police On June 02, 2022 at approximately 1321 hours Vermont State Police, Williamstown Fire Dept., Williamstown EMS and Barre Town EMS responded to a report of a tractor trailer rollover on VT RT 64 in the town of Williamstown. 
The operator of the truck has now been identified as Dante Elliott, 46 of West Haven, Connecticut, and the passenger as Nicole Ende, 37 of West Haven, Connecticut. 
Investigation determined that a tractor trailer was traveling eastbound on VT RT 64. Witnesses reported that the tractor trailer’s brakes were smoking and mechanical failure is suspected to have been a factor in the crash. Investigation revealed that the tractor trailer flipped onto its side while attempting to navigate a sharp corner and subsequently left the traveled portion of the roadway. The tractor trailer slid into a ditch and came to a position of uncontrolled rest on it’s roof.
The operator was transported to Central Vermont Hospital in Critical condition where he was pronounced deceased. The passenger was pronounced deceased at the scene of the crash by EMS. The identities of the operator and passenger are being withheld at this time pending notification of next of kin. VT RT 64 was closed for approximately 5 hours while crews were on scene.
The investigation into this crash remains active, and anyone who witnessed this crash is asked to contact Tpr. Bohnyak at the Middlesex State Police Barracks.
