One person was killed and another person was injured in an accident in Pine Township involving two tractor-trailers and two pickup trucks on Monday, March 12, 2018.

Northern Regional Police early Tuesday cleared the accident scene of Route 910 in Pine Township where a Sewickley man was killed Monday.

PennDOT is expected to re-open the road by 5 a.m., according to police

Officials identified the man killed in the traffic accident as Jay Watts, 54, of Sewickley.

The accident, involving a tractor-trailer and a pickup truck, happened just before 2:45 p.m. at the intersection of Route 910 and Karrington Drive, Allegheny County spokeswoman Amie Downs said.

That section of Route 910, near Babcock Boulevard, also is known as Gibsonia Road.

Downs said the tractor-trailer truck was hauling a crane when it overturned, and the crane toppled on top of the pickup.

Route 910 was closed between Hardt and Babcock Boulevard.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
