RIDGEFIELD, Conn. — Erin Vick, 22, of Ridgefield, was killed in what police described as a wrong-way collision on the New Jersey Turnpike early Friday, according to the website

The driver of the other car, a 32-year-old New Jersey man, also died in the crash near Kearny, N.J. at about 12:35 a.m., Friday. A passenger in the car Vick was driving, a 20-year-old Tennessee man, was seriously injured, says. 

Investigators have not determined which car was traveling on the wrong side of the turnpike, the story reported. 

Vick was a nursing student at Catholic University of America in Washington D.C., the website said. A Facebook page for Erin Vick says she is a 2009 graduate of Ridgefield High School. 

Several people who expressed their condolences on Twitter Friday referred to a series of recent deaths in Ridgefield. 

"Cannot believe another tragedy has struck Ridgefield. RIP Erin Vick, another gone too soon," Lisa Fox ‏wrote under the Twitter handle @LMFoxy.

"Praying for ridgefield. Another great life has been taken too soon. rip erin vick #staystrong," wrote Tori North under the Twitter handle @tcakes27.

In July, Brian Schiavetti, a 21-year-old 2009 Ridgefield High School graduate, was fatally shot during what police described as a robbery in Montclair, N.J. Also in July, Alex Bergman, a 23-year-old from nearby Somers, N.Y., drowned in a Ridgefield pool. 

In September, the death of Ridgefield's David Riek, 44, was ruled a suicide after his body was found in the woods in town. A search for Riek began after he did not return from a run.
