ALEXANDER, N.Y. - One person has died following a serious crash on Route 20 near Browns Mill Road Saturday afternoon, according to police.  

Genesee County Sheriff's have confirmed that the driver of the pickup truck, 48-year-old Frank Demarco, of Batavia, has died in the crash.

Investigators say Demarco was driving his pickup truck east on Route 20 at 1:30 p.m. when he lost control on the snow covered highway and crossed into the path of a tractor trailer.

Police tell 2 on Your Side that the driver of the tractor trailer, 54-year-old Douglas McPherron, of Clayton, NY, was taken to United Memorial Medical Center in Batavia for medical evaluation.

Police say a second person in the pickup truck, 32-year-old Brandon Eck, of Rochester, was taken to Strong Hospital with serious injuries.

Deputies say an initial investigation indicates that slippery road conditions and improper speed due to road conditions may be contributing factors.

Deputies added that Demarco was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
