Somers High School student dies in deadly accident on Route 118

A Somers High School student died in a car crash Wednesday afternoon on Route 118 just south of Meadow Park.

Investigators say 17-year-old Eric D?Agnese was killed when he lost control of his car and struck a telephone pole. The accident caused portions of Route 118 to be closed for several hours. Investigators say they are unsure what caused the accident, but don?t believe alcohol or drugs played any role.

D?Agnese was preparing to graduate in the coming weeks. Counselors are expected to be at Somers High School Thursday.
