Driver injured in truck rollover on Thruway

A truck driver was taken to the hospital early Thursday morning after he rolled his truck over on the eastbound Thruway in Chautauqua County, State Police said.

The one-vehicle crash happened at about 2:30 a.m. about two miles west of the Silver Creek exit.

The driver, who was taken to Lake Shore Health Care Center in Irving for treatment of neck pain, told troopers he swerved to avoid a tractor-trailer that was moving into his lane, but investigators have found no such evidence, police said.

No drug or alcohol use is suspected by the driver, who is from Erie County but was not otherwise identified.

The driver was not ticketed, State Police said.
