BRISTOL, Vt. -
A car accident in Bristol, VT Saturday night has taken the life of an elderly woman who is a lifelong resident of the town.
It was about 6 PM Saturday when Ann Roscoe was crossing the street close to her home when 85 year-old Ann Roscoe was struck by a car at the intersection of North Street and Park Street and eventually died from the injuries she received in the accident.
It was right outside her home that Roscoe was crossing the road when she was hit by a car driven by a 19 year-old Ashley Nancollas of Bristol. Roscoe was transported to Fletcher Allen in Burlington where she died of from her injuries. Police say that alcohol and drugs do not appear to be a factor in the accident.
Her neighbor for almost a decade, Lisa Powell, came home as Bristol Police were still investigating the incident.
"I've known Ann an extremely long time before we were neighbors," Powell said.
She said that Roscoe had always been a lively person, even at the age of 85, and that she was a great friend to talk to.
"We'd just kind of sit in the chairs waste the day away solving the world's problems and talking about what was going on in town," Powell said.
Roscoe had been a longtime member of the community. She had been a member of St. Ambrose church her entire life and Saturday evening she was on her way to mass when the accident occurred. The church is only a block from her home.
Congregation members said they could see police cars on North Street as they came together for the service. Roscoe was also known as the lunch lady at a local high school and a friend to many, like her neighbor.
"Yeah we kind of looked out for each other and it's going to be hard right now it's like oh my god she's not there. and that's really going to be the tough part right there," Powell said.
Roscoe had four sons who lived in Bristol as well.
Vermont State Police will help reconstruct the accident this week. Bristol Police are still investigating the scene. No charges have been filed against Nancollas.
