A 38-year-old Carmel woman was killed Monday night in a one-car accident on the Saw Mill Parkway in Mount Kisco when the vehicle she was driving suddenly veered off the road and down an embankment.

Rossy Sanchez was pronounced dead on arrival at Northern Westchester Hospital following the fatal mishap that occurred on the northbound side of the parkway between the Roaring Brook Road and Route 133 exits at about 8:20 p.m., police said.

Westchester County police spokesman Kieran O’Leary said that Sanchez, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from her 2003 Honda CRV after it turned over. Her two sons, ages 12 and 13 and both sitting in the back seat, were wearing seatbelts and escaped with minor injuries. They were transported by the Mount Kisco Volunteer Ambulance Corps to Northern Westchester Hospital where they were treated and released.

The family’s dog, which was also in the car, was found dead near the scene of the crash by emergency responders.

An investigation is being conducted to determine the cause of the accident, O’Leary said. However, it does not appear that excessive speed was a factor.

O’Leary said that witnesses who were driving the parkway told police that Sanchez’s car did not interact with any other vehicles on the parkway before it went off the road.

“The witnesses’ commented that the vehicle veered to the right, onto the shoulder and started to roll and ended up in a wooded area,” O’Leary said.
