One man is dead after his SUV collided with a tractor trailer on Route 63 in Genesee County Sunday morning.

It happened near Shepard Road in the Town of Batavia around 2 a.m.

Genesee County Sheriff's deputies say John Dow, 29, of Pavillion, crossed the center line with his SUV and hit the tractor trailer head on.

Dow died at the scene.

Police say alcohol may have been a factor with the combination of wet roads.

The tractor-trailer driver from Canada did not sustain any serious injuries.

Deputies continue to investigate the cause of the accident. ClientIP:,, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
