NORWOOD — A Norfolk man was killed when his car went off the road and struck a tree Tuesday evening on River Road in the town of Potsdam.

St. Lawrence County sheriff’s investigators said James I. Murphy, 67, was southbound about 7:45 p.m. when his 2005 Chevrolet Aveo failed to negotiate a curve, went off the left side of the road and struck a tree.

Sheriff’s detectives said Mr. Murphy suffered blunt force trauma in the crash. St. Lawrence County Coroner June H. Wood responded to the scene. An autopsy has been scheduled.

Police said the cause of the accident remains under investigation.

The sheriff’s department was assisted at the accident scene by state police, Potsdam police, Norwood Fire Department and Norfolk Fire and Rescue.
