— State police said a Fort Plain man died this morning after his car ran off the road and overturned into a pond.

Troopers said Bo M. Baker, 21, of Center Street, was driving west on Route 5 when he lost control, went off the south shoulder of the road, hit a snow embankment and overturned. The vehicle came to rest with its roof partially submerged in a pond along the road.

Troopers said they have yet to determine the time of the accident or how long Baker was in the car before they were alerted by a 911 call about 6:45 a.m. Baker was taken to Little Falls Hospital, and troopers said an autopsy will be performed.
