PINCKNEY — A 31-year-old man was killed when his car was hit by a tractor trailer in Lewis County Friday evening, according to the Lewis County Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff's deputies said Amer Al Naqeeb, of Horseheads, Chemung County, was eastbound on Route 177 at about 7 p.m. Friday. Deputies said Naqeeb lost control of his 2014 Honda CRV due to unsafe speeds, unsafe rear tires and slippery road conditions.

Naqeeb's Honda crossed into the oncoming lane, right into the path of a westbound 2022 Peterbilt tractor trailer, driven by Mario Barrera, 35, of Florida, deputies stated. Barrera attempted to slow down, but authorities said he was unable to keep the tractor trailer from crashing into the passenger side of the Honda.

Naqeeb suffered serious injuries and died a short time later at the county hospital, authorities said.

Barrera and his passenger were not injured, deputies said. The crash remains under investigation.
