New York State Police early Thursday morning were dispatched to a fatal accident on Old Route 17 in the town of Windsor.
A 43-year-old male resident from Windsor was operating a 2005 Dodge Caravan when he went off the roadway for an unknown reason. His vehicle struck several mailboxes, went through a lawn and over a creek landing in a wooded area.
Neighborhood interviews revealed that the crash occurred at approximately 10:30 p.m., when a resident heard a loud noise but was not able to see what caused it.
Another resident contacted 911 Wednesday morning when they spotted the vehicle. When troopers arrived, the male was deceased.
