A New York City man was killed last week in a one-car accident on the Taconic State Parkway in Putnam Valley.
According to State Police in Stormville, at approximately 9:34 a.m. on September 7, troopers were dispatched to the Taconic just south of Exit 31A for a report of a car off the roadway. An investigation determined a 1995 Toyota Tacoma, driven by Douglas W. Day, 55, of New York, NY was traveling south when the vehicle left the roadway for unknown reasons and struck a tree.
Day was pronounced dead at the scene by the Putnam County Coroner’s Office.
