The state Highway Patrol's investigation of a double fatality that killed two local grandparents remains open.

North Fairfield residents Rodney D. Williams, 69, and his wife, Betty L. Williams, 66, of 203 N. Main St., were pronounced dead at the scene of the two-vehicle collision that happened at 2:18 p.m. Saturday on West Ohio 162 in Fitchville Township.

Rodney Williams and his wife were passengers in the 2000 Dodge Dakota pickup truck driven by Karlie Conaway, 15, of Greenwich, their granddaughter. The other driver was Troy A. Green, 40, of 91 Birchpark Drive, New London.

Conaway has a temporary instruction permit, said Lt. Douglas Hamman, the Norwalk post commander. Permits are eligible for teens who are 15 1/2 years old.
