PENN TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — One person was killed in a motorcycle crash early Friday morning in Penn Township.
The crash happened shortly before 3 a.m. near the corner of Route 130 and Hillview Road.
The Westmoreland County coroner’s office says 29-year-old Ryan J. Winter, of Plum Borough, went off the road while going around a curve, struck a guiderail and was thrown from the motorcycle.
Winter was pronounced dead at the scene.
The coroner’s office says he was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash and speed is believed to have been a factor.
Route 130 was closed in both directions for more than two hours between Sloan Avenue and North 14th Street Extension. The road reopened around 5:30 a.m.
