A Buffalo man has pleaded guilty to killing a baby in a car accident. Erie County District Attorney John J. Flynn announced the 20-year-old pleaded guilty on the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2022, before state Supreme Court Justice Debra Givens. for one count of criminally negligent homicide and one count of second degree assault.
On December 13, 2021, about a quarter past 8 p.m., Gino M. Cesar was driving high-speed data westbound on Genessee Street. He failed to stop at a red light at Pine Ridge Road Cheektawaga, causing a collision with another vehicle at the intersection. A 6-month-old boy, who was a passenger in the other vehicle, was killed in the crash. A female passenger who was also in the other car suffered serious injuries, including a broken hip, as a result of the crash. She continues to recover from the accident. A third passenger was slightly injured.
Caesar and the people accompanying him were slightly injured.
He faces up to seven years behind bars. Cesar is due to be sentenced on Monday, November 7, 2022, at 11 a.m. He is currently being held without bond. The case against Cesar was prosecuted by Chief Paul J. Glascott and Assistant District Attorney Christine O. Murray of the Vehicle Crimes Unit. My thoughts go out to the family of the baby who was tragically killed in the accident.
