MANCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A truck driver has died after crashing on the Thruway in Manchester Tuesday morning.

State police say the 34-year-old was heading east on I-90, driving a tractor with no trailer, when he drifted through the center median and into the westbound lanes.

Police say he then went the wrong way on the on-ramp at Exit 43 before hitting a tree head-on.

The out-of-state driver died at the scene.

Police are still trying to determine why he crossed the median.
