The Genesee County Sheriff's Office says a 29-year-old man died Sunday morning after his vehicle hit a tractor-trailer head-on.

Deputies say the crash happened on Route 63 in Batavia around 1:40 a.m.

According to officials, John Dow, of Pavilion, was traveling northbound on Route 63 when his vehicle hit a tractor-trailer driven by a 35-year-old man from Canada head-on.

Investigators are still looking into the cause of the crash, but say Dow may have been impaired and crossed over the center line. Deputies also say wet roads may have been a factor.
