Morrisville psychiatric facility set to open

MORRISVILLE — Vermont’s newest psychiatric facility is ready to take patients.
Green Mountain Psychiatric Care Center is set to open and be ready to receive patients on Wednesday.
The facility represents part of the state’s efforts to reorganize its mental health system following Tropical Storm Irene in 2011, which flooded and forced the closing of the Vermont State Hospital in Waterbury.
The state also is going ahead with plans to build a 25-bed psychiatric hospital in Berlin and expand or create smaller facilities around Vermont.

Woman killed in Rte. 100 crash

EDEN — Vermont State Police say a woman is dead after the car she was driving was hit by a dump truck on Route 100 in Eden.
Ashley Allard, 25, of Morrisville was pronounced dead at the scene.
The crash occurred at about 9:10 a.m. Monday just north of the Boy Scout camp, near the Lowell town line.
The woman was driving a Honda Civic sedan north on Route 100 when it crossed the center line and was hit by the Whitcomb Construction dump truck driven by Valerie Hans, 46, which was towing a trailer.
Police say the driver of the dump truck was not hurt.
The roadway was closed for several hours after the crash while wrecking crews removed the vehicles from the roadway.
The cause of the crash is continuing, although police say speed does appear to be a factor.
