UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP/KDKA) – State police say one person was killed and another injured when they were struck by a vehicle in western Pennsylvania.
Police in Fayette County said the two were struck shortly after 5 a.m. Sunday in the northbound lanes of Route 43 in Georges Township.
According to state police, 20-year-old Daquan Woods of Hiller and 19-year-old Justus Mapstone from Brownsville stopped their car in the right lane of the road at mile marker 3.6. The two then got out of the vehicle and walked into the left lane of the road.
State police say a 22-year-old woman was driving in the right lane of the road, saw the stopped vehicle and swerved into the left lane to avoid hitting the car, striking Woods and the 19-year-old woman. She then hit the concrete center barrier, crossed across both lanes of traffic and struck the guide rail on the right side of the road.
Woods was killed in the accident, and Mapstone was transported to Ruby Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
No arrests were immediately announced.
The investigation is ongoing.
