1 Woman Killed In Bethel Park Crash

BETHEL PARK (KDKA) – A crash in Bethel Park left one woman dead Friday morning.

According to officials at the scene, the crash happened on Broughton Road around 5:30 a.m.

It appears that the female driver crossed the center line, went off the road and struck a tree.

It’s unclear why 22-year-old Bobbi Okonski was headed from South Park to Bethel Park early this morning. She was the only person in the vehicle at the time of the crash.

Investigators say she may have been going too fast.

The speed limit on the heavily traveled road is 35 miles per hour, but neighbors say people rarely drive that speed.

“We have a speed monitor posted on one of the utility poles and that is one of our targeted enforcement areas. Unfortunately, we can’t be there all the time,” Bethel Park Police Chief Timothy O’Connor said.

Broughton Road between Baptist and Willis roads was shut down for five hours as investigators collected notes and took pictures.
