One person was killed in a three-vehicle crash in Westmoreland Thursday morning, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff’s Office officials told NEWSChannel 2 crews on scene that a pickup truck coming from Sutliff Road went through a red light at the intersection with State Route 233 and struck a tractor trailer that was driving through the intersection on Route 233.

After colliding with the tractor trailer, the pickup truck then struck a car, according to officials.

Officials say the pickup truck driver was killed in the crash, and it’s unknown if anybody else was injured in the crash, but nobody was transported to the hospital.

Central Oneida County Volunteer Ambulance Corp., the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office, the Stanwix Heights Fire Department, and the Westmoreland Fire Department all assisted at the scene.

The Sheriff's Office said that as of 3 p.m., Route 233 and Sutliff Road are now open to traffic. Drivers are advised to use caution in that area as the tractor trailer involved in the crash is still on the shoulder of the roadway.

We will provide more information as it becomes available.
