Four people were killed Monday in a two-car crash on Vermont Route 22A in Bridport.

State police said the road was closed between Vermont Route 74 and Vermont Route 125. The crash scene was near North Cream Hill Road.

The crash was reported about 12:40 p.m. Monday. The road reopened just after 5 p.m.

Police believe a Volkswagen Beetle was driving northbound when it crossed the center line and hit a Ford pickup truck head-on.

Officials said two men and two women in the car were pronounced dead at the scene. They were believed to have been co-workers.

According to authorities, Steven Holmes, 20, of Chatsworth, Ga.; Amber Brewer, 19, of Dalton, Ga.; Justin Hendrix, 38, of Bryceville, Fla., and another woman, whose identity has not been released, were pronounced dead at the crash site. 

Authorities said none of the occupants was wearing a seat belt.

Two other adults in the truck were taken to UVM Medical Center in Burlington to be treated injuries described as non-life threatening.

Police identified them as Lisa Nunez, 51, of Leesburg, Fla., and Thomas Sykes, 27, of Wilmer, Ala.

Nunez and Sykes were wearing seat belts and suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Multiple rescue crews were called to the scene.

The crash remains under investigation.
