RANDOLPH — A Massachusetts man who was a passenger in a vehicle on Interstate 89 died in a single-car crash in Randolph Saturday afternoon.
Vermont State Police say Jonathan K. Taliadoros, 22, of Gloucester, Mass., was driving southbound when he lost control on the snow-covered roadway and began to fishtail. State police say the Toyota Tundra that he was driving went off the west side of the roadway and continued down an embankment, where it struck a tree on the right side of the cab.
Benjamin Mohla, 21, of Wakefield Mass., who was not wearing a seatbelt and was sitting in the right rear passenger seat, was killed in the crash.
Taliadoros suffered a head injury while another passenger, Myles Cox, 21, of Gloucester Mass., suffered a neck injury, according to state police.
The exact cause of the crash is still under investigation. Road conditions, however, were increasingly slippery Saturday as snow squalls and cold temperatures were moving into the region.MORE IN Central Vermont
