Troopers said Torres was eastbound behind a tractor trailer and was unable to stop when he struck the back of the truck. Torres was taken by ambulance to ECMC where he was pronounced dead.

State police told WGRZ.com that there were between 15 to 20 crashes that were likely triggered by a chain reaction. Multiple people were treated for minor injuries. One other person is in serious condition.
