PELHAM — One person was killed in a two-car accident on Daniel Shays Highway (Route 202) about 8:30 p.m. Thursday, police said.

One of the vehicles left the road and went down into an embankment, and the person in that car was killed, Pelham Police Chief Gary Thomann said.

The accident occurred a half a mile north of the intersection with Amherst Road, he said.

An accident reconstruction team was called to the scene, Thomann said.

No further details were available Thursday night from Thomann or Mary Carey, a spokeswoman for the Northwestern District Attorney’s office.
