It happened just before 4 a.m. Wednesday in Colchester.

Vermont State Police say Hawa Aphy, 37, of Bristol, Connecticut, was headed north in the southbound lane when she crashed into Paula Poquette of Fairfax.

Both drivers and a 1-year-old child in Aphy’s car were taken to the hospital; police say their injuries were not life-threatening.
