KISS fan dies in fiery crash on way to Toronto concert that was cancelled

Two people are dead after a speeding vehicle went airborne and then burst into flames at a border checkpoint at the Rainbow Bridge on Wednesday morning.

It happened just before 11:30 a.m. on the U.S. side of the crossing.

Surveillance footage, released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, shows the vehicle speeding down a road leading up to the border checkpoint. The vehicle then leaves the roadway, crosses over a median and appears to go airborne.

It's being reported by CNN that the man was heading to the KISS concert in Toronto.


It's now being reported he was going to the KISS concert in Ottawa and that he stayed the night at a local casino.


Friends say the couple had been having problems with the gas pedal on the car just weeks before the fatal crash.

Villani and his wife lived in Grand Island, New York just 10 miles from where the crash happened.

Bentley has not yet commented on the crash but family friends of Villani say he was having a problem with the accelerator.

The Villani family owned Gui's Lumber and had a tradition of handing out turkeys on Thanksgiving and were featured on the news in 2014 for handing out 250 turkeys.
