VIENNA — A Jay woman was killed this morning in a single vehicle crash on Town House Road shortly after snow began to blanket the roadway.

Patricia Tardif, 74, was a passenger in a 2009 Suzuki sedan driven by her husband, Alfred Tardif, 51, when the vehicle, which was traveling south, went off the road into a ditch and then struck a tree.

Maine State Trooper Diane Perkins-Vance, who investigated the crash, said the vehicle was traveling too fast for road conditions as it rounded a curve. The crash was reported at 11:38 a.m.

Perkins-Vance said both airbags deployed and both Tardifs were wearing seatbelts.

Alfred Tardif was taken by NorthStar Ambulance to Franklin Memorial Hospital with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening, Perkins-Vance said.
