A Selkirk man is dead after a fully loaded gasoline tanker truck he was driving overturned in the Town of Easton.

The Washington County Sheriff's Department says 57-year-old Stephan Andriani was pronounced dead at the scene.

The truck was traveling northbound when it drifted to the right hand side of the road and went into a two hundred fifty foot ditch.

Several hundred gallons of fuel spilled out onto a field off of Rte 40.

The truck was the only vehicle involved.
