UPDATE: Jamestown man killed in one-vehicle crash
A Jamestown man was killed in a one-vehicle crash early Sunday.
A passing motorist around 5 a.m. spotted lights off the road to the eastbound on-ramp to Interstate 86 at North Main Street Ext. A trooper located a 2003 Pontiac Vibe on its side with one person inside.
The driver, later identified as 40-year-old Jeffrey A. Baker, was pronounced dead, the state police said in a news release.
Capt. Eric Balon said the vehicle reportedly entered the on-ramp at a high rate of speed when it left the road and traveled down an embankment.
Firefighters from Fluvanna and Falconer were summoned, as well as Chautauqua County EMS. A coroner was later called to the scene.
The body was taken to the medical examiner’s office in Erie County.
The crash remains under investigation, Balon said.
