A Buffalo man killed in a five-vehicle pileup Monday during rush-hour traffic at an Amherst intersection was identified Tuesday as David Adamski, 38, of North Ogden Street.
He was transported from the scene of the 5:45 p.m. crash at Sheridan Drive and Getzville Road to Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital, where he died a short time later.
According to Amherst police, Adamski was driving east on Sheridan Drive when he apparently struck a westbound vehicle that was already in the intersection and thought to be turning left onto Getzville Road.
Adamski's car became airborne and struck three other vehicles that were stopped in traffic, said Enzio Villalta, captain of the Amherst traffic division. No one in those vehicles was believed to be seriously injured.
