We now know the name of the man who died after crashing into a tractor trailer in Alexander Saturday afternoon.

Genesee County Sheriffs tell us 48-year-old Frank R. Demarco of Batavia died at the scene of the crash around 2 o'clock.

Deputies say Demarco lost control of his pick-up truck on the snow-covered highway when he crossed into the path of a tractor trailer on route 20.

The passenger of the pick-up truck was airlifted to Strong Memorial Hospital for a serious leg injury.

Police there told us drivers must be careful in winter conditions.

"Speed is usually the problem in most accidents in this type of weather so, you
have to slow down, take your time to get to your destination," said Sergeant James Meier.

Deputies tell us slippery road conditions and speed were contributing factors in the crash.

Demarco wasn't wearing his seatbelt.
