The victim was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash near Seneca Street and Archer Avenue, DeGeorge said.
His vehicle was struck about 1:15 a.m. by a Chevrolet Silverado that apparently was speeding, according to the report. Police said the truck then rolled over several times.
The driver of the truck, a 41-year-old Kenmore man, was taken by ambulance to Erie County Medical Center, where he is listed in serious condition, DeGeorge said.
His passenger, a 44-year-old woman, was treated at ECMC and released. No charges have been filed at this time, DeGeorge noted.
