(Athol, MA) — A woman is dead and her driver badly injured after a head-on crash on Route 2. Thursday afternoon a Prius carrying an Arlington couple collided with a tractor-trailer in Athol, killing sixty-seven-year-old Carol Lawton. Police say it happened when a Shirley woman tried to pass in the breakdown lane. She grazed the Prius, sending it out of control and into the path of the truck.
