Police in the Town of Niagara and City of Buffalo are investigating two different overnight crashes.  

In the Town of Niagara, police say a sleeping driver is to blame for the crash on Porter Road.

That crash was reported just after 2:00 a.m. Monday.  Police tell us the driver was not hurt.  No charges have been filed.

About an hour earlier, in Buffalo, one person was taken to the hospital after a crash on Louisiana Street.  This is right near the Perry Housing complex.

The crash was reported about 1:00 a.m. Monday.

It appears the driver of a black pick up truck crashed in to the back of a red car.  The back of the car was smashed in.  The black truck came to a rest feet away.

Buffalo police have not said what caused this crash.

We've reached out to police for information.  A spokesman has not returned our request for details.

No word on the victim's condition.
