Once troopers arrived on the scene, they spoke to the driver, who said the truck had been there since around 2:00 a.m.

He was then transported to a nearby hospital in serious condition.

UHP said the crash was not visible to drivers passing by until daylight.

The victim’s identity has not yet been released.
