KEENE VALLEY, N.Y. (AP) - State police say a 79-year-old man has died and a 65-year-old woman hospitalized after a one-vehicle crash on an Adirondack road.

Troopers say Michael Curran of Keene was traveling north on state Route 73 shortly before 7 p.m. Tuesday when his sport utility vehicle ran off the road’s west shoulder, hit a utility pole and then a tree in the Essex County hamlet of Keene Valley.

Emergency crews treated Curran at the scene, but he was pronounced dead by the county coroner about 90 minutes after the crash.

An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.

Troopers say a passenger, 65-year-old Jeanne Warner of New York City, was taken to Elizabethtown Community Hospital for treatment of leg and arm injuries.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.
