Man involved in deadly Maserati crash from 2019 pleads guilty to vehicular manslaughter


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A man involved in a deadly crash in Buffalo in October 2019 has pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter, among other charges.

Prosecutors say Antonio Brown was quickly driving a Maserati down Seneca Street when he crashed into another vehicle, resulting in the deaths of 32-year-old Kristin Labruno and 33-year-old Anthony Twentyfive, III. Erie County District Attorney John Flynn told News 4 that Brown was driving 64 mph.

It happened around 2:30 a.m., and at the time, Brown’s license was suspended. Both Brown and his female passenger were taken to ECMC for non-life threatening injuries.

“This defendant made the decision to drive while intoxicated and speed down Seneca Street on a dark, rainy night. His reckless actions resulted in the tragic death of two young people. I hope that the families of the victims feel that justice has been served by this defendant taking accountability for his actions by pleading guilty to all of the charges against him.”

In addition to the charge mentioned above, Brown also pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicular homicide and two counts of second-degree manslaughter.

When sentenced in September, Brown could spend a maximum indeterminate sentence of 8 1/3 to 25 years in prison. Currently, he’s free on $50,000 bail.
