JEFFERSON – The driver of water tanker truck died Monday morning when his truck ran off Greene Grove Road in Morgan Township and struck a tree.

Clem Giancola III, 56, of North Huntingdon, Westmoreland County, was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:39 a.m. by Greene County Deputy Coroner Mary Lewis.

Giancola was driving up a hill when his truck ran off the right side of the road and hit the tree, Lewis said.
