Update: 11/23/23: Kurt and Monica Villani, both 53, were killed in a deadly explosion after their vehicle crashed and went airborne on Rainbow Bridge.
This was updated at 6 pm. All reports of terror are now debunked. A reckless driver crashed on Rainbow Bridge.
There was an explosion on Rainbow Bridge on the US-Canada border. It has been blocked to all traffic after reports of a car explosion. Patrol cars from different police agencies, including the Niagara Falls Police Department and US Customs and Border Patrol are on site. It occurred at 11:20 this morning.
Governor Hochul said that there is no evidence of terror.
Other border crossings at the US-Canada border are also closed as a result of the Rainbow Bridge explosion.
US Customs and Border Patrol has just said at about 3:30 pm that a reckless driver caused the explosion on Rainbow Bridge.
According to Reuters, an initial U.S. Customs and Border Protection assessment suggests the explosion at the Rainbow Bridge crossing may have been caused by a reckless driver whose actions resulted in a crash and fire. Explosives may NOT have been in the car.
That’s quite a difference from a terror attack! Two people in the car were killed, and a Border Patrol agent allegedly has minor injuries.
It was reckless driving and no sign of terror – allegedly. They know that without a probe. I want to know the names of the driver and passenger.
THE WRONG NEWS REPORTED EARLIER
Much of the erroneous reporting came from Fox News.
According to Laura Loomer, the Islamic terrorists who blew themselves up on Rainbow Bridge were heading for the Macy’s Day parade. She allegedly quoted the FBI.
Act for America is reported it was a terror attack.
All bridges are closed in the area, and all government buildings are evacuated, according to the sources.
There is an additional terrorist bomb threat at the Peace Bridge, roughly 20 miles away.
