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.
Kennedy died on the scene. Birchard was pronounced lifeless on the hospital.
