A 73-year-old man was killed early this morning when he lost control of his truck and hit a tree, according to police.

The 1983 Chevrolet pickup skidded on to an embankment and struck a tree, police said.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

Alcohol was not considered to be a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.
