An Endicott man is dead after a three vehicle accident early Thursday morning in Kirkwood.

Police say that Clever Agudo, 37, of Flushing, NY was driving a tractor trailer on I-81 northbound, in the driving lane, when he struck the rear end of a Chevrolet Cobalt that was being driven by Kyle J. Shaffer, 27, of Endicott, NY.
