There were nasty reminders across Vermont this morning that the winter driving season is upon us.
State police say a 43-year-old Rutland woman died today after her car spun around on an icy bridge and into oncoming traffic on U.S. Route 7.
Donna Arnado died after her car was hit by a pickup truck.
And Interstate 89 was also slippery.
The northbound lanes were closed down between Richmond and Williston because some traffic couldn’t make it up the steep slope known locally as French Hill.
And in Colchester, the southbound lanes were closed for a time because of road conditions.
In both instances, a light snow had fallen and quickly turned to ice.
The highway was reopened by midmorning after the roads were cleared.
