A Connecticut soldier who was stationed at Fort Drum in New York was killed in a crash in New York early Sunday morning, according to New York State Police.
Police said Ronald J. Dupuis III, of North Grosvenordale, was involved in a one-car crash on Highway 37 in Brier Hill, New York.
Dupuis, a U.S. Army soldier, was driving his 2011 Toyota pickup east on Highway 37 in Morristown, just west of Brier Hill, when he lost control at a curve and his truck went down an embankment, according to New York State Police.
Police said he hit a raised driveway and his truck flew for 164 feet, then flipped over for an additional 91 feet.
Dupuis was pronounced deceased at the scene. Police are investigating.
