VIENNA, N.Y. (AP) - State police say the driver of a stolen pickup truck is dead after he crashed into a tree while trying to flee from troopers in central New York.

Troopers spotted the truck speeding early Sunday in the Oneida County town of Vienna, 25 mile northeast of Syracuse.

Police say the driver briefly braked when troopers activated their emergency lights, but then sped off.

The pickup truck then went around a curve, left the road and hit a tree. The driver was partially thrown from the truck. He was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Troopers identified the driver Monday as 18 year-old Tyler Sharron, of Rome, New York.

Police say an investigation determined the truck had been stolen.

An investigation is ongoing.
