N. Belle Vernon motorist killed when car overturns

A North Belle Vernon woman died Saturday afternoon when her car overturned on Ridge Road in Rostraver, police said.

The victim, Jennifer Hora, 34, of 720 Park Ave., died of blunt-force trauma to the head, Westmoreland County Deputy Coroner Timothy O'Donnell said. Hora died at 4:10 p.m. at the scene of the one-vehicle crash in front of 1111 Ridge Road, O'Donnell said.

Rostraver police and the coroner said the crash occurred at 2:30 p.m. when Hora's westbound car crossed the center line and went off the south berm of Ridge Road. It hit an embankment along a curve in the road and overturned onto its roof. Hora was the lone occupant, police said.

Speed is believed to have played a factor in the crash, and Hora was not wearing a seat belt, O'Donnell said.
