Buffalo, NY (WBEN) - One person has died a result of a crash  on Delaware Avenue that had the road closed in both directions between Forest Avenue and Nottingham Terrace in the early morning hours.

The accident was reported shortly after midnight Friday, at the Route 198 overpass over Delaware Avenue.

Here's a statement from Buffalo Police:

Authorities say a vehicle was traveling southbound when the driver apparently lost control and struck the center bridge abutment on the 198 Bridge over Delaware Avenue.

Officials say the driver was partially ejected from the vehicle and had to be extricated by Buffalo fire.

The male driver, in his late 20's, was declared deceased at the scene.

Authorities are investigating if the vehicle may have been traveling at a high rate of speed.

Delaware Avenue between Nottingham and Forest Avenue was closed in both directions from midnight until it was reopened just before 4am.
