PARISH, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities have released the name of the man who was killed when a pickup truck crashed on Interstate 81, closing the highway’s northbound lanes north of Syracuse for nine hours.

The Oswego County Sheriff’s Office says 23-year-old Alexander Chartrand of Adams Center was traveling north around 3:15 a.m. Wednesday when his truck veered off the highway and hit a guardrail in the town of Parish, 25 miles north of Syracuse.

Deputies say Chartrand and a passenger, 24-year-old Spencer Parsons of Adams Center, were ejected from the vehicle.

Parsons was pronounced dead at the scene. Chartrand is listed in critical condition at a Syracuse hospital.

A third passenger was treated and released and while a fourth was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Chartrand was charged with driving while intoxicated. It couldn’t be determined if he has a lawyer.
