Motorcyclist, passenger killed in Vermont crash

DERBY, Vt. (AP) — Vermont State Police say two individuals have died in a crash involving a motorbike and a shuttle bus in Derby.

Police say the 2 victims are 23-year-old Ronald Kennedy, of Newport, who was driving the bike, and his passenger, 20-year-old Kyra Birchard, of Derby. They had been killed Tuesday afternoon when the bike hit the Rural Transportation bus after the bus had turned onto Shattuck Hill Road.
