Driver, passenger killed in Newfane car accident

Two people were killed in a Ridge Road car crash Saturday night.

The Niagara County Sheriff's Office reports that a vehicle was traveling west on Ridge Road at a high rate of speed about 10:15 p.m. and failed to negotiate a curve in the road.

The driver lost control and veered onto the north side of the road, in the area of 7191 Ridge Road, striking a mailbox, a small tree and then a large tree before coming to a rest.

Both the driver and the passenger were pronounced dead at the scene.

Names of the victims are being withheld until families are notified and the investigation is complete.

No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
