BUFFALO, N.Y. - At least one person is dead after a horrific early-morning crash in Buffalo Saturday.
Police say it appears two vehicles were racing on Main Street, and one of the vehicles turned onto Woodlawn Avenue going in the wrong direction. That vehicle crashed through the guardrail, plunged onto the Kensington Expressway, rolled onto its roof and burst into flames.
Emergency crews tried to get the victim, a male in his late 40's, out of the vehicle, but he died on scene, according to police.
Investigators say the other car involved in the race also crashed. Officers are questioning that driver.
Dave Mangus with Rural Metro pulled up to the scene when the heat and flames became too intense for his crew to withstand.
They attempted to get the man out of the vehicle for about two minutes.
