State Police officials, who had been investigating Hildebrand’s involvement in the July 2012 crash on Grand Island, declined to comment on his death.
Hildebrand and the driver of the other car, Burhanur Rahman, 22, of Hamtramck, Mich., were the only ones to survive the two-car crash that followed Hildebrand’s northbound trip in the southbound lane of I-190.
At the time, state police said that Hildebrand may have entered the Niagara Thruway near downtown and traveled under the Peace Bridge, past a number of southbound cars, over the South Grand Island Bridge and head-on into Rahman’s car, killing three passengers in the vehicle. Shofiul Alom, 20, and Nazim Khan and Rezwan Chowdhury, both 21, also of Hamtramck, a city surrounded by Detroit, all died in the crash. A spokeswoman for Amigone Funeral Home said it could not comment on the cause of Hildebrand’s death and indicated the funeral service, planned for St. Adalbert Cemetery in Lancaster, will be private.
