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.

I have no words for this terrible accident!

There have always been accidents. And people have always commented on them. I know someone who has been in a wheelchair for decades because someone chose to drink and drive. These older people probably thought that this child needed experience and they made a bad decision by letting her drive. Nothing will bring these people back. Not all the prayers in the world. We need to pray for those living and recuperating.

I don't see anything in the story that indicates that road conditions were a contributing factor in this horrible accident. When I was out driving at this time on Saturday, the roads were wet but clear. My most sincere sympathies to the families and prayers for the recovery of the injured.

The accident happened during the snow storm yesterday. It was snowing pretty heavily and the roads were snow covered and slick. I won't tell you how I know, but suffice it to say, I work out on the roads in rural huron county.

I wonder if this is the same lady I worked with in Norwalk years ago, If so sad, she was really nice.
I agree about not letting a 15/ 16 year old drive in those conditions. They 're not careful enough. No excuse at all. and the driving age should be raised.

I am very sorry for your loss and the pain that your daughter is going through at this time but OTHER people do have to realize that it is the only way young ones and some old ones are going to learn how to drive in the bad weather is to drive in it. You can not learn these things sitting behind a schoolbook or watching it on a screen. Again I am very sorry for both sides involved....

Winter storm driving is an advanced skill that is usually learned after Basic driver training, NOT while on a permit.

Well aren't you just a know it all. Bet you have no children and it's probably a good thing you do not.

It's better to teach beginners winter driving in a smaller car out in a parking lot first. So they can get the feel of it That's the way I was taught ... Not behind a big engine they can't control, it's too much horsepower at first.

Sad lesson all the way around.

Prayer to all
Blessed are they who mourn,for they shall be comforted.
May you be wrapped in the arms of a loving saviour

LOL. It is quite amazing the amount of idiots on here who aren't mature enough to debate differences of opinion without threatening someone, isn't it. Needless to say, he has me shaking in my boots. LOL.
