One man was killed, another was seriously hurt in a late-night crash Friday in Buffalo.

Police say the driver was speeding on Fillmore Avenue just before midnight when he lost control, sideswiped a light pole and hit a tree at Fillmore and North Parade. The driver, 50-year-old Rodney Cole, died at the scene.

A passenger in the car was taken to ECMC with serious injuries. He has since been treated and released.
