BOSTON (AP) — State police say two women have been killed and another injured after an SUV hit a tree on private property on Martha’s Vineyard.

Police said 70-year-old Judith Morse of West Tisbury, was backing a 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser down a driveway at 2 Red Gate Farm when she struck a tree just after noon Tuesday. Police said she then drove forward, striking an electrical box and a porch before traveling down a hill and hitting a tree head-on. Her front-seat passenger, a 69-year-old Lyman, N.H., woman, also was killed. The rear passenger, 68-year-old Susan Papanicolaou of Minneapolis, had minor injuries.

The larger Red Gate Farm property was the summer home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Her daughter, Caroline, said in a statement, “Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims of this tragic accident.”

    This is bizarre, who could error so much while driving..I heard the property was owned by indians, years ago, maybe it’s cursed.
