Two people were killed about 12:30 p.m. today in the crash of a tractor-trailer and van on Transit Road near Casey Road in Clarence.
The victims were an elderly man and woman in the van, said state police at Clarence, who have not released their identities.
The crash occurred when the rig, which was traveling south on Transit, swerved into the opposite lane and struck the northbound van, police said. The van ended up careening into a house located next to a bar-restaurant, police said.
Traffic on the busy stretch of roadway was diverted following the crash, resulting in the closing of the roadway between Casey and Muegel Road.
Further details were unavailable.
