DERBY — A two vehicle accident this morning in Derby left two cars totaled and two people being taken by ambulance to the hospital for evaluations.
The accident happened at around 8:30 this morning near the Spruce Road on Vermont Route 105 in Derby.
Miranda Phillips, 18, of Newport, was traveling east on Vermont Route 105 when she lost control of her vehicle. Road conditions played a part in the accident, as the roads were covered in wet, slushy snow, with light flurries taking place at the time.
Phillips, driving a 2007 Mazda MZ6, spun around at least twice after she lost control of her vehicle.
Renee Patten, 30, of Derby, was traveling west when Phillips crossed into her path. Patten was driving a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500. The two vehicles collided.
The right side passenger area of the Mazda was crushed, causing the airbags to deploy. The car was totaled.
The front axle of the Dodge Ram snapped, and suffered damage to the left front end. The occupants of the vehicle were transported to North Country Hospital for an evaluation.
Phillips was ticketed for driving too fast for conditions and hazards.
