(WBNG Binghamton) One man is dead after a car accident on Conklin Forks Road in the Town of Conklin late Saturday night.

Broome County Sheriff's Office said he driver, Matthew R. Desanctis, 28 of Conklin, lost control of his 2001 Honda Civic, crossed over the double yellow line and hit a tree.

The Sheriff's Office said the roads were wet at the time of the crash and speed may have been a factor.

They said it immediately appears that alcohol was not a factor.

Desanctis was pronounced dead at the scene.

An autopsy is said to be performed on Monday.

The investigation is still ongoing.

The Sheriff's Office was assisted at the scene by Conklin Fire and Broome Ambulance.
