COOK TOWNSHIP, Pa. (KDKA) – A man was killed on Friday when his truck struck a tree in Westmoreland County.

Sixty-six-year-old Joseph E. Lopuch Jr., of Cook Township, was traveling south on Bethel Church Road when his pickup crossed into the northbound lanes before crossing into the berm and striking a tree.

Lopuch was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from his truck. He was transported to Latrobe Hospital, where he later died.

It is unclear what caused Lopuch’s vehicle to veer off the road.
