CICERO, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say one man is dead and two others injured after the van they were in was struck by a tractor-trailer carrying construction vehicles.

Officials responded to the crash at 5:04 p.m. Friday on Route 31 in Cicero, a Syracuse suburb.

The Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office says the tractor-trailer was traveling south on Route 81 and exited onto Route 31. It failed to stop at a traffic signal and struck the van traveling on Route 31.

The van then rolled onto its roof. The tractor-trailer’s cab landed on top of the van.

Authorities say two men in the van were taken to a hospital with serious injuries. One man was pronounced dead.

The driver and passenger of the tractor-trailer had no injuries.

None of the victims have been identified.
