Mother and daughter injured in car crash

On Dec. 5, 2012, at approximately 12:14 p.m., Vermont State Police responded to a one vehicle crash near residence 4635 Cold River Rd in Shrewsbury, Vt.

Upon the arrival of State Police, the occupants, Samantha Didio, age 24, and her mother, Karen Didio, were being extricated from within their 2009 Pontiac Vibe. Both were immediately transported to Rutland Regional Medical Center for urgent care. Karen was later transported to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in critical but stable condition.  

Although the investigation is ongoing, the investigating trooper believes the Didio's car was traveling north on Cold River Rd when the operator, Samantha, lost control of the vehicle and crashed head on into a tree. Drugs and alcohol were not a factor. Conditions were wet and overcast. Samantha was wearing her seatbelt.

The Shrewsbury Fire Department and Rutland Regional Ambulance Service assisted at the crash scene.
