Three people were taken to the hospital after a tractor-trailer and car crash on I-490 eastbound in Chili Tuesday morning.

State Police say Damion Cuyler, 34, of Rochester, was passing a tractor trailer in the left lane when he lost control of his vehicle and hit a guardrail. Police say Cuyler’s vehicle then re-entered the road and entered the path of the tractor trailer, causing a collision.

Cuyler was taken to Strong Hospital and has since been released.  A passenger  in his car, Roderica Wright, 26, of Rochester, was also treated and released from the hospital.

The driver of the tractor trailer, Joseph Vinovrski, 54, of Franklinville, was treated at the scene. 

Cuyler was ticketed for driving too fast for conditions.

Parts of 490 were closed for a few hours Tuesday morning.
