A fiery tractor-trailer crash has left one man, the driver, dead just past the LeRoy Thruway exit today.
The crash occurred at about 6am today.
State Police Captain Michael Nigrelli says the driver of the tractor-trailer was hauling building materials from Ohio when he began driving erratically. His rig eventually left the roadway, struck a tree line, and burst into flames.
The driver has not been identified by name. Nigrelli says he was a 49-year-old man from Decatur, Alabama. He was driving the truck for Creet Carriers, a company based out of Lincoln, Nebraska.
Family members are being contacted today.
