Police believe two families were traveling in the van while returning to Buffalo after vacationing in Florida, Montijo said.
Blankets and pillows found in the wrecked van indicate the group may have been traveling all night, possible evidence that driver fatigue may have played a role in the collision, Montijo said. The accident happened 20 miles south of Buffalo.
An 11-mile stretch of the Thruway's eastbound lanes were closed for four hours after the crash.
