Two people were killed in a car crash in West Charleston Sunday

Esperanza Robles, 29, of Derby Line and Ryan Coulter, 26, of Newport were thrown from a 1994 Honda Prelude operated by Joshua Cole, 30, of Derby when the car hit a big tree, State Police said.

A press release from Sergeant Sean Selby says that both speed and alcohol are believed to be factors in the accident, which occurred at about 4:40 p.m.

No one was wearing a seatbelt, and all three passengers were thrown out of the vehicle.

The Honda was westbound on Route 105 at the intersection with the Fontaine Road. After exiting a sharp corner, it went off the north side of Route 105, Sergeant Selby said.

Mr. Cole suffered head injuries, police said, and Amanda Letourneau, 27, of East Charleston suffered serious head and leg injuries.…To read the rest of this article, and all the Chronicle‘s stories, subscribe:
