    Michael H. Duell, of County Route 119, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, which occurred around 1:40 p.m. Thursday on State Route 414 near Pine Hill Road, according to New York State Police in Painted Post.
    Duell was driving south on Route 414 when his vehicle drifted onto the west shoulder of the roadway and overturned into a ditch. Duell was pinned inside the truck after it crashed, troopers said.
