Delaware State Police identified on Monday the driver who died in a tractor-trailer accident along I-95 near Ogletown as a 65-year-old New York man. 

According to police, Gary J. Buffalino, of Centereach, was the operator of a big rig that crashed along I-95 south of Christiana Road on Sunday, November 17, 2019. 

Police said Buffalino wasn't wearing a seat belt when his truck left the roadway and struck a stand of trees near the Welcome Center, ejecting him from the cab of the vehicle. He drifted from the far left lane across three lanes of the highway before striking another vehicle and then traveling down a small embankment. 

The driver of the second vehicle was treated at the scene for minor injuries, police said.
