Driver killed in Vt. crash on icy bridge

WILLISTON, Vt. — Light snow turned Vermont highways into skating rinks during the morning commute on Monday, contributing to one fatal crash in Rutland and the closure of parts of Interstate 89.

Donna Arnado, 43, of Rutland, was killed when her vehicle spun around on an icy bridge on Route 7 and struck a pickup truck in the oncoming lane shortly before 7 a.m.

The driver of the pickup was taken the hospital with bruised ribs.

A Vermont State Police ­dispatcher at the Williston ­barracks told the Burlington Free Press around 7:45 a.m. that ­police were ‘‘getting ­hammered’’ by reports of ­crashes along the interstate.

The northbound lane on ­Interstate 89 was blocked on French Hill in the town of ­Williston while the southbound lane was closed just north of ­exit 16 in Colchester due to the icy conditions that made the roadways impassable, police said.

Traffic was moving again around 9:45 a.m., but snowfall and glare ice caused many ­other crashes around the ­region, police said.
