Police said they have charged a Vermont woman with negligent homicide and aggravated driving while intoxicated after a car crash in which two people were killed.

Police said the crash happened at 11:15 p.m. Friday night on Route 10 in Croydon. They said the head-on collision killed 20-year-old Michelle Fenimore of Brownington, Vt., and 18-year-old Nicholas Carpenter of Coventry, Vt.

Police said a car driven by 22-year-old Kristine Lake of Sharon, Vt., drifted into the southbound lane before crashing with the car driven by Fenimore, in which Carpenter was a passenger. Lake suffered minor injuries and was later charged.

Police said Lake was released on $50,000 bail and is scheduled to be arraigned Oct. 3. They said they didn’t know if she has retained an attorney.
