New York State Police have identified the man killed in a multi-vehicle crash on the Thruway Tuesday.
Investigators say a tractor trailer traveling eastbound on I-90 in Cheektowaga came to an abrupt stop due to an accident ahead.
Edward Torres, 64, of Elba, was unable to stop and hit the rear of the tractor trailer. He was transported by ambulance to Erie County Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Police say multiple people were treated for minor injuries. One person remained in serious condition Wednesday.
