3 killed, 8 hurt in crash on Thruway in western NY

BRANT, N.Y. (AP) – State police say a van carrying 10 people home from a Florida vacation has rear-ended a dump truck in western New York, killing an infant and two adults and injuring eight others.
Capt. Douglas Montijo says the van drifted off the highway Thursday morning and hit the back of the Thruway Authority truck as it moved slowly on the shoulder of Interstate 90 in the Erie County town of Brant, south of Buffalo.
He says a Thruway crew was picking up rubbish along the highway. The truck driver suffered minor injuries.
Montijo says the man driving the van and a female passenger were killed along with a 1-month-old boy. An adult and six children in the van are being treated at hospitals.
