Couple Going To KISS Concert Involved In Rainbow Bridge Crash
A tragic incident unfolded on Wednesday at the Rainbow Bridge on the U.S.-Canada border, where a couple lost their lives in a fiery crash. Contrary to initial concerns about a possible terrorist attack, law enforcement has revealed that the couple had originally planned to attend a Kiss concert in Canada.
According to information provided to CNN by law enforcement officials, the New York couple intended to be part of Kiss’ farewell concert in Ottawa. However, the concert got canceled due to guitarist Paul Stanley’s flu recovery, leading the man to reportedly opt for a visit to a U.S. casino instead.
The fatal crash occurred after the couple left the casino, as per sources cited by CNN. Traveling at a high speed in a 2022 Bentley, the couple’s vehicle collided with a curb, then a guardrail, eventually becoming airborne and landing in the secondary screening area of the Rainbow Bridge.
Law enforcement has not released the identities of the couple. It remains unclear whether the crash was intentional or accidental, with investigators exploring the possibility of a medical emergency afflicting the driver, as reported by The Independent.
Border Lockdown and Airport Suspension
The incident initially raised concerns of a terrorist attack, prompting a temporary closure of all border bridges between the U.S. and Canada and a suspension of flights at Buffalo Airport, as confirmed by Canadian and New York officials.
Kiss is currently in the concluding stages of their End of the Road farewell tour, scheduled to end on December 2 at Madison Square Garden in New York.
