MAN KILLED WHEN CAR HITS REAR OF METRO BUS

A Buffalo man was killed Friday morning when his car plowed into the rear of a Metro Bus at the intersection of Abbott Road and North Drive in Lackawanna.

Robert A. Orefice, 65, of 315 Weimer St., was pronounced dead at the scene. Lackawanna Police Captain Joel Budimirovich said an autopsy will be conducted to determine whether Orefice experienced a medical problem that may have led to the fatal crash.

Budimirovich said the victim's car slammed into the rear of the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority bus, which was stopped at the intersection waiting for the light to change.

Orefice was the lone occupant of his vehicle. There were no passengers on the bus at the time of crash and the driver was not injured.
