State police investigate fatal Thruway crash

Posted

SCHUYLER (AP) — The state police Thruway detail is investigating the cause of a tractor-trailer crash in central New York that claimed the driver’s life.

Troopers say the truck was traveling in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 90 around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday when the driver drifted off the highway’s shoulder and hit the median guard rail and overturned in the Herkimer County town of Schuyler, just east of Utica.

Troopers say the driver was from out of state and his name isn’t being released until his family has been notified.

The left lanes in each direction were closed for a time while the crash scene was cleaned up and the tractor-trailer removed, according to authorities.
