Authorities have released the name of the truck driver who was killed in a crash Monday afternoon that injured another driver.
State police say 40-year-old Shawn Wetmore of Batavia was killed when his box truck was hit by a tanker truck that crashed off the westbound lanes of Interstate 490 around 1 p.m. Monday and fell onto Route 590 below in the town of Brighton.
