Questions still surround deadly crash in Buffalo

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — It’s been nearly five months and there are still little answers as to what exactly happened on Pomona Place in the early morning hours of October 27th, when a crash killed 33-year-old Anthony Twentyfive III and 32-year-old Kristin LaBruno.

According to Buffalo police, Twentyfive and LaBruno were trying to pull out of a parking spot when they were hit by a 2008 Maserati.

It wasn’t until December after 7 Eyewitness News filed a Freedom of Information request that we received the police report from the crash, identifying the driver of the Maserati as 34-year-old Antonio D. Brown.

Brown hasn’t been charged. Police told us they were waiting for the return of toxicology reports and sending the black box data from the Maserati to Italy for testing.

We pressed harder, filing more Freedom of Information Requests asking for a copy of the search warrant, supporting affidavit and a copy of the evidence seized at the scene and Buffalo police denied our request.

Through attorney Mickey Osterreicher, 7 Eyewitness News appealed that denial of information and won.

On January 31, we received a letter from the City of Buffalo Attorney Timothy Ball urging the Buffalo Police Department to release three of four documents we requested.

Three weeks later, we still have nothing from the Buffalo Police Department.
