Police: 2 killed in single car crash on western NY road

LEWISTON, N.Y. (AP) -- Authorities say a man and a woman have been killed when their car crashed off a western New York road, hit a tree and broke in two.

Police in Lewiston tell local media outlets that the vehicle crashed around 2:10 a.m. Monday on Walmore Road in Niagara County, 20 miles north of Buffalo.

Officers say the impact broke the vehicle into two parts, with the section containing the two men ending up about 30 feet away from the other section.

Police identify the victims as 32-year-old Brandon Rickard, who was driving, and 29-year-old Danyle White. They were pronounced dead at the scene.

Both lived on the Tuscarora Indian Nation Reservation near the crash scene.

Investigators believe speed was a factor in the accident, which remains under investigation.
