BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Four people were sent to the hospital Tuesday night after a three-vehicle crash at Fillmore Avenue and Genesee Street in Buffalo.

The accident happened just before 11:30 p.m. when a Jeep was headed west on Genesee Street, possibly speeding, when it went through a red light and hit a vehicle, according to Buffalo Police. The Jeep bounced off that vehicle, struck a second vehicle and ran into a pole.

Witnesses told police that “possibly two people got out of the Jeep and fled the scene,” a BPD spokesperson said.

Four people in the two vehicles that were hit were taken to Erie County Medical Center for treatment.

The Jeep is in police custody as the investigation continues.

The vehicles involved were identified as a Tesla and two Jeeps.

Anyone with information on this crash is asked to call or text the Confidential TIPCALL Line at (716) 847-2255.
