Man dies after his SUV leaves road and strikes home in Buffalo

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)- Buffalo police are investigating a fatal overnight car accident on Fillmore Ave.

Police say a 37-year-old Buffalo man was driving his SUV north on Fillmore when he left the road and struck a home. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators say there is significant damage to the house but the occupants inside were not injured.

News 4 spoke with two brothers who were asleep, inside the home when the crash happened.

“We were both asleep in the back on our bunk beds and we heard a big boom like boom. We’re used to hearing stuff like that but we weren’t expecting anything like that. It’s unbelievable,” said one of the brothers. “When I heard it first you would have mistaken it as a bomb. When my mom got up the first thing she said was, ‘where’s my boys? Where’s my boys?’ I had went to the front to see an SUV in the room.”

Investigators say the cause of the accident remains under investigation. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
