1 Killed In Overnight Mercer Co. Crash

PERRY TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — A single-vehicle crash in Mercer County overnight claimed the life of one person.

State police say the accident happened just before 3 a.m. on State Route 358 at Bean Road in Perry Township.

Authorities have now identified the victim as 21-year-old Cody Lawrence of Sandy Lake, Pa.

According to state police, a 1999 Honda Accord CP was headed east on State Route 358 when Lawrence lost control trying to negotiate a sharp curve in the road.

The vehicle struck a mailbox and then hit an embankment.

Officials say the vehicle continued traveling along the top of the embankment, going through some brush and small trees, and then rolled back onto the road.

The car then rolled again and came to a rest on its wheels in a yard, state police said.

Lawrence, who state police say was not wearing a seatbelt, was pronounced dead at the scene at 3:40 a.m.
