A tractor-trailer driver died when his rig veered off the westbound I-90 near the Milestrip Road exit in the Town of Hamburg about 7:52 p.m. Sunday, according to State Police.
The rig crashed into a house at 4377 Highland Parkway, but no one in the house was reported injured. According to a State Police report, the rig was loaded and struck a utility pole after veering off the Thruway and then struck the house at the dead end of Highland Parkway.
The State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit was at the scene late Sunday with Hamburg police and Big Tree Fire Department units. The fatal accident remained under investigation late Sunday. No information was released about the driver or where he had been heading.
The right lane of the westbound I-90 near the exit was temporarily closed Sunday night due to low-hanging utilities wires that resulted from the crash.
