Both drivers injured in a two-car, head-on collision on Route 100 in Morristown last Tuesday, Sept. 3, have been released from the hospital.

Their names were not available by press time last week.

One driver, William Fishell, 52, of Morristown was taken to Copley Hospital by ambulance and released later that night.

The other driver, Christle Page, 21, of Ryegate was also transported to Copley Hospital by ambulance, then airlifted to the University of Vermont Medical Center by helicopter.

On Wednesday, Sept. 11, UVM Medical Center staff reported that Page was no longer at the hospital; they believe she’d been discharged. According to police, Page’s injuries included a broken left leg.

Fishell was treated at Copley for a cut on his head and released that same night, according to hospital staff.

According to police, the crash occurred at 5:25 p.m. near the intersection with Meadow Drive. Police say Page was traveling north on Route 100 in her 2007 Ford Focus when she became distracted while changing the radio station. She swerved into the southbound lane and oncoming traffic to avoid rear-ending a vehicle stopped in front of her — it was waiting to turn onto Meadow Drive — and struck Fishell’s 1998 Volvo station wagon head-on.

According to police, a passenger in Fishell’s car had minor injuries caused by a seat belt.

Police are still investigating the crash, which shut down Route 100 for over an hour.
