The boy, Vikas Parikh, resident of Rocky Hill was traveling with other students to a school competition when the crash occurred.
The delivery truck crashed at 7 a.m. according to police reports. It had been traveling in the westbound lanes on Interstate-84 when it went through the guardrail and landed below in the embankment.
Police identified the driver of the truck as a 37-year-old man. He had reportedly lost control of the vehicle due to, what police suspect, was fatigue or another factor. The investigation continues. He survived with non-life threatening injuries. It was not reported if he was treated by medical professionals. The investigation continues as police try to determine what caused the crash and if the road conditions played a part.
