WALLINGFORD — Two people were taken to Rutland Regional Medical Center on Sunday afternoon following a crash on Route 103.

Vermont State Police responded to a report of a two-vehicle crash around 2:15 p.m. on Route 103 in East Wallingford near the train trestle bridge.

A 2013 Harley-Davidson motorcycle, driven by Anton Schroeder, 53, was traveling south when it crossed the center line in an attempt to pass a tractor trailer ahead of him, according to police.

Police said Carol Ross, 61, was heading northbound in a 2009 Honda Civic when Schroeder’s motorcycle hit the rear fender of the Civic.

Schroeder, of Ludlow, lost control of the motorcycle and traveled off the road in the northbound land and into a wooded area. According to police, Ross applied her vehicle’s brakes but was unable to avoid the collision and went off the road as well.

A hospital spokeswoman said Schroeder was listed in fair condition Sunday night and Ross, who police said had “soreness” and a “possible neck injury,” was treated and released.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene.

The Vermont State Police were assisted by members of the Mount Holly Fire Department and Rescue Squad and the Shrewsbury Fire Department and Rescue Squad.
