    Monica (53) and Kurt P. Villani (53) killed in car crash explosion at the US/Canadian border

    https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news...ork-rcna126568

    The two victims who died on Wednesday in a deadly explosion on the U.S.-Canada border have been identified as a married couple from Grand Island, New York, Niagara Falls police said.

    Monica and Kurt P Villani, both 53, crashed on Wednesday morning while driving down Rainbow Bridge, which leads into and out of Canada at Niagara Falls. People who witnessed the accident said the car went airborne after it struck a cement median. It then caught fire and exploded when it hit a border crossing booth.
    In a news briefing Thursday afternoon, Niagara Falls Mayor Robert Restaino said investigators believed the pair were headed to a KISS concert on Wednesday night. The concert was eventually canceled because frontman Paul Stanley was sick with the flu, according to a post by the guitarist on X.

    A spokesperson for Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino on the U.S. side of the border said the couple stopped at the casino for ?a matter of minutes shortly before the crash occurred.?

    Police said the crash is still under investigation, but have determined that there were no explosives or a connection to terrorism.
    Despite Fox News trying their best to make it into a terrorist situation and using it to bash immigrants (legal and illegal) and Biden....

    Seriously, a coworker goes "did you hear about the terrorist bombing at the border?" so I read the article and I'm like, "dude, it was a car accident."

    I flew into Buffalo that day. When I was landing, the news was saying that bombs were found at all the bridges in the area going between the US and Canada. Where they got that information is beyond me, but my parents had a hell of a time getting to me to pick me up from my flight. So much security!

    Ultimately, the reporting was all wrong, and this couple seemed like they were really good people. Sounds like it was probably a mechanical issue with their car. The video footage from the accident was insane - the car was airborne before it crashed and exploded.

    We had just been there the weekend before. We walked across the bridge to Canada.

    I knew, when I first heard where it had happened and saw the damage and where the damage was, that this was no bombing. I was on a group text w/ the in-laws and we all knew this was no bombing based on the pictures/footage. But when has FOX ever cared about truth?

    Oh, I know. Even before we took off from Philly people were talking about it. It sounded to me like a car accident and nothing sinister. But FOX ran with it as a terror attack, as they do.

    That is insane. I am not sure why the media jumped all over this immediately like it was a terrorist attack. They like to keep us in fear.

    Not all the media did this. Just the right wing media ran with it being a terrorist attack. They want to keep everyone hating everyone else and living in fear. It helps them to control people.

    WBEN 930 did this, apparently, and they are about as right wing as it gets. They've changed from when I worked for their news department in the mid-90s.

    Non RW news sources reported it as a fiery crash and said they were unsure of the cause at the moment, but the RW news immediately reported it as a terrorist bombing and then started discussing why all immigration is bad.

    I think I saw the initial 'terror attack' article on Daily Mail, then went to CNN for the real news. You are correct that right-wing media really wants to frighten people. It's really odd.

    Frightened people are easier to control.

    They seemed disappointed when they had to say it wasn't terroristic. Who gets sad/mad because there wasn't a terror attack?

    There is speculation the accelerator stuck. Apparently that was an issue with the Bentley model they were in.
