A brief high speed chase in Buffalo's medical corridor turned fatal early Saturday morning.When Buffalo Police officers attempted to pull over a 2007 Jeep Liberty around 2 a.m., the vehicle quickly took off. Moments later it crashed into a pole at Michigan Avenue and East North Street.
The car's 21 year old male driver from New York City died a short time after the crash. Two of the vehicle's passengers were taken to the Erie County Medical Center with apparently non-life-threatening injuries.
