 A 24-year-old Niagara Falls man who is the nephew of a former Niagara County legislator has died after a crash on Friday.

Matthew Sklarski was taken to ECMC with life-threatening injuries after his truck hydroplaned on Niagara Falls Boulevard, then wrapped around a pole.

The incident took place at around 4:30 when Sklarski lost control of his Chevy S-10 while trying to turn onto Tuscarora Road.

Sklarski's uncle, Danny, was a legislator with the county.
