BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The eastbound lanes of the 198 have reopened after a late-night accident involving a tractor trailer.
Buffalo Police say the truck driver, a 59-year-old New Jersey man, suffered a medical emergency while driving just past Parkside Avenue around 10:30 Thursday night.
Police said the man was heading east and hit several light poles, the wall under the Main Street overpass and the guardrail at the Humboldt on-ramp before coming to a stop.
The driver later passed away at ECMC.
The eastbound lanes were closed for around seven hours, but were reopened early Friday morning.
