There is no sign of terrorism following the explosion on the US-Canada bridge. This is what we currently know.

Governor Kathy Hochul of New York stated that there is no sign of terrorism following the death of two persons in an automobile explosion that occurred on Wednesday at the US-Canada Rainbow Bridge border crossing. The governor said that following the event, all four of the bridges that connect Canada and the United States near Niagara Falls were promptly closed.


She stated that although the Rainbow Bridge remained down, the Peace, Whirlpool, and Lewiston-Queenston bridges reopened later on Wednesday. Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Miraglia responded, "We do have someone in mind for it and we're working through it through the JTTF," a reference to the Joint Terrorism Task Force, when asked why the FBI doesn't think there is a terrorist danger.


What is known as follows: Fast-moving vehicle: According to law enforcement officials who spoke to CNN, investigators suspect a man and his wife were driving a 2022 Bentley at a high speed when it struck a curb and then a railing, sending the car flying into the Rainbow Bridge's secondary screening area. Investigators suspect the man traveled to a casino in the US instead of the canceled KISS performance he was supposed to attend in Canada. According to law enforcement officials, the couple had left the casino when the collision happened. Social media and security camera footage shows the ashes scattered, with strong smoke and flames shooting out.


According to Hochul, a border patrol agent working in a booth also had some minor wounds. Executives briefed: The event was reported to the leaders of the United States and Canada. "At first, we weren't sure if it was a terrorist attack or not," Erie County Sheriff John Garcia stated. "Nevertheless, all necessary measures were implemented to guarantee the community's safety." Referring to the collision as a "tragic accident," he Headaches from travel: On a busy travel day, the explosion that occurred on the eve of the US Thanksgiving holiday caused closures and delays. There was a temporary stoppage of international flights into and out of Buffalo Niagara International Airport, and other travelers were advised to prepare for extra screening.
