Police say Daniel Monaco, 35, of Jay, N.Y., was traveling west on Route 9N when he crossed the center line and struck guardrails, a utility pole, and tree. Monaco was pronounced dead by the Essex County Coroner.
An autopsy found the cause of death to be blunt force trauma to the head, consistent with a motor vehicle crash. A press release says the cause of the crash is still under investigation.
