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.
