BROOKLINE (KDKA) — A salesman for Rohrich Toyota was killed while attempting to cross West Liberty Avenue in Brookline.

Theodore Biancucci, 50, was walking from a used car lot to the Toyota showroom Friday afternoon when the accident happened.

He was struck and dragged about 80-feet by a Plymouth Voyager minivan traveling outbound.

The speed limit is 35mph. No charges have been filed against the driver so far.

Victoria Geis, Biancucci’s sister-in-law, believes speed played a role in the accident.

She said that her brother-in-law would give anyone the shirt off of his back and asked that people pray for the wife and 12-year-old daughter he leaves behind.
