WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- A 32-year-old Westchester man was killed in a one-car fatal crash around midnight on the Taconic State Parkway early Wednesday in Mount Pleasant, state police said.

A 2008 Audi A6, operated by Jason G. Shenkman of Mohegan Lake, was traveling northbound on the Taconic State Parkway when he reportedly lost control of the Audi and entered the median where the vehicle struck several trees before coming to rest, said Trooper Melissa McMorris of the New York State Police.

Firefighters from both Briarcliff Manor and Hawthorne responded and extricated the man from the car.

A preliminary investigation indicates that speed was a contributing factor to the crash, McMorris added.

Shenkman was transported to Westchester Medical Center by Briarcliff Manor EMS where he was pronounced dead, state police said.

Shenkman’s cause of death is pending autopsy and toxicology.
