The driver of a car was killed and a passenger was seriously injured when the driver apparently lost control of the vehicle, sideswiped a light pole and hit a tree late Friday night in Buffalo, police said.
The car “appears to have been traveling at a high rate of speed,” police said in a statement.
The incident happened just before midnight on Fillmore Avenue, at North Parade.
The driver was declared dead at the scene. The passenger, described as a male, was transported to Erie County Medical Center. Police said his injuries “appear to be serious in nature.”
The names of the victims were not released.
