A 63-year-old Westchester man killed during a single-vehicle crash on Route 116 has been identified.
William S. Jackson of Mount Vernon was killed around 5:25 a.m. Tuesday in the town of Somers after losing control of his vehicle, said Trooper AJ Hicks, spokesman for the New York State Police.
An initial investigation suggests Jackson was driving a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee westbound on State Route 116 when he lost control, causing the vehicle to leave the roadway via the north shoulder, struck a concrete wall, and then overturned, Hicks said.
Jackson was extricated from the vehicle by Somers Fire Department and pronounced dead on the scene by Westchester paramedics, he added.
The investigation remains on-going.
Along with the state police, the following agencies and details responded: Somers Fire Department, Westchester EMS, Westchester Medical Examiner’s Office, and the Troop K Collision Reconstruction Unit.
