Updated: Brookline man killed in Wilton crash

A Brookline man was killed on Monday morning when his car went off the road and struck a tree.

According to Wilton Police, Chauncey Talcott, 20, of Brookline was traveling east on Route 101 near Wilton Center Road in a 1997 Honda when the accident occurred. Talcott&#';s vehicle reportedly went off the right side of the road, then veered back onto Route 101, crossing both lines of traffic before crashing into a tree on the left side of the road, police said.

Talcott was transported to Monadnock Community Hospital in Peterborough, where he was pronounced dead.

Before the accident, according to police, a witness noticed that the Honda was weaving in the roadway.

&#';I do not believe that speed or alcohol were factors at this time,&#'; said Wilton Police Chief Brent Hautanen. The chief also said there is no evidence to indicate that drugs were a factor either, but he added he will have to wait for the medical examiner&#';s office to complete its investigation before making that final determination.
