The overturned dump truck in the creek on Van Auken Road.

A Pulaski man died Monday in a crash on Van Auken Road in the town of Boylston.

State police said Brian E. Parker, 63, was driving a 1997 International dump truck at about 11:15 a.m. Monday when the truck exited the west shoulder of Van Auken Road and overturned in a creek.

Parker was partially ejected and submerged in the creek for about five minutes before he was extracted from the vehicle. He was transported by NOCA Ambulance to Oswego Hospital and then transferred to Upstate Medical University, Syracuse.

He died from his injuries at about 4 p.m.

The investigation is continuing.
