A North Fairfield couple died and two other people were injured in a two-vehicle crash that shut down Ohio 162 west of New London Saturday afternoon.
Rodney Williams, 69, and Betty Williams, 66, were pronounced dead at the scene of the 2:18 p.m. crash near Town Line Road, according to a news release from the Mansfield post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
Rodney Williams was a front seat passenger and Betty Williams was a backseat passenger in a pickup driven by Karlie Conaway, 15, of Greenwich, when she lost control and went left of center into the path of an oncoming vehicle.
Conaway’s westbound 2000 Dodge Dakota collided with a second pickup, a 1998 Ford Ranger driven by Troy Green, 40, of New London, who was driving east.
All four occupants were trapped when the New London Fire Department arrived to extricate them from the pickups.
Conaway and Green both suffered serious injuries and were taken to Fisher-Titus Medical Center in Norwalk for treatment.
Rodney Williams, Conaway and Green were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash. Betty Williams was not.
No charges have been filed.
There was no indication of any alcohol or drug use that could have contributed to the cause of the crash.
Conaway is a student at South Central High School.

my sincerest sympathies to all family members and friends

Probably not a good idea to have a 15 yr old inexperienced driver with a permit driving during a snowstorm.

@Mommy2jonny. You have my sincerest sympathy for your losses. I cannot even begin to imagine how awful it must be for our 15-16 year old going through this. She must be just devastated right now. Please express my deepest sympathy to her also. Of course it isn't her fault. That is why they call these things ACCIDENTS. I am sure she did not intend for this to happen. I hope that at some point in time she gets some professional help in dealing with all of this. I am sure she will need it. God bless her and the rest of your family in their hour of need.

@mommy - Maybe you should be caring more about your family, instead of worrying about what people are posting on news sites.

This is a horrible tragedy for all involved.

Why do friends or family of accident victims, on the very next day, subject themselves to reading the comments on a newspaper article, where opinions hold sway and speculation runs rampant?

Because they are drama queens that want to stir the pot
