Preliminary investigation by Trooper Daniel Cahill indicates that at about 4:25 p.m. today, a 35-year-old Chicopee man was traveling on Route 90 Westbound in a 2004 Honda Accord when, for reasons still under investigation, his vehicle traveled off the left side of the road into the median. After leaving the roadway the Honda rolled a number of times. Speed is believed to be a contributing factor.
