Rochester man still in critical condition after Tuesday crash

BRENTWOOD - A Rochester man was in critical condition Wednesday after his pickup truck collided with a tractor-trailer truck on Route 125 Tuesday morning.

Michael Starkey, 50, suffered serious injuries in the accident that occurred when the 2000 Ford Ranger pickup truck he was driving southbound on Route 125 crossed into the northbound travel lane, police said.

Starkey's truck hit a 1986 Freightliner tractor-trailer unit driven by William Valpone, 45, of Newbury, Mass.

Starkey was flown to Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston and was listed in critical condition Wednesday night. Valpone suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene.

State Police continue to investigate the cause of the accident.
