WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A New York man who was taken to the hospital with serious injuries following a single-car crash on I-91 in West Springfield early Monday evening has died. 

Massachusetts State Police spokesman David Procopio said the man, 42, is from Staten Island, NY. His name has not been released. Troopers at the Springfield barracks received multiple phone calls about the single-car crash on I-91 southbound near mile marker 10.6 in West Springfield shortly after 5 p.m. 

Upon arrival, the troopers arrived to find the vehicle off the left side of the road.  

Procopio said preliminary investigations revealed that the 42-year-old man was driving a 2001 Honda Accord when, for reasons still being investigated, he veered off the roadway and crashed in the median. 

He was taken to Baystate Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. 

The crash caused the left lane of I-91 to close for about two hours. 

Police are still trying to determine what caused the deadly crash. State Police crime scene services, accident reconstruction team, West Springfield Fire Department and MassDOT assisted with the crash.
