NBC reports a Ford Mustang fell from Route 304 and flipped over before stopping in the middle of the road. The accident killed the unnamed driver. No other injuries were reported.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation. A Rockland County resident reports people drag race in the area of the accident each weekend.

"I hear the cars drag racing every single weekend," Wendy Packer Fleischman commented on the Clarkstown Police Department's Facebook post about the fatal accident. Not sure if this accident is related, but where are the police? This has been going on now for years and every weekend. I live blocks from 304 and hear it like it is in my backyard."
