FENTON, N.Y. -- A man from Susquehanna County was killed in a crash early Monday morning in New York State.

The Broome County Sheriff says Jeffrey Lind of Hallstead was driving a tractor trailer owned by Xpress Natural Gas when he apparently tried to avoid a deer on Interstate 88.

The rig hit a concrete barrier and overturned.

The 52 year old died.

Since the truck was hauling compressed methane gas, homes within a quarter-mile radius of the crash in New York were evacuated as a precaution.
