The crash occurred shortly before 2 a.m. when a Toyota Sienna speeding northbound struck a tractor trailer turning left onto at the intersection of Stump Road and Jordan Road, according to police.
They say the vehicle passed underneath the tractor-trailer before stopping.
26-year-old Patrick Hallinan of Stonesthrow Road in Elbridge was killed during the crash.
The Toyota’s driver was airlifted to Upstate University Hospital in critical condition.
The tractor-trailer operator was not injured.
