Local and county police are investigating a two-vehicle crash on Friday on Riddle Run Road in Springdale Township that killed an 11-year-old boy and sent his mother and the driver of the other vehicle to area hospitals.

Kyle Rozman of New Kensington was pronounced dead in Childrens Hospital, Pittsburgh, at 5:17 p.m., according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's office. An autopsy is scheduled for Saturday.

According to Allegheny County police, the vehicle with Kyle and his mother was traveling south on Riddle Run Road when it went out of control and spun sideways into the northbound lane, where it was struck by the other vehicle.

Police on Friday did not release the name of the mother nor of the driver of the other vehicle.

The crash occurred about 4 p.m. near the intersection with Freeport Road.

Police are investigating the cause of the collision, according to Springdale Township police Chief Michael Naviglia.

Slippery road conditions may have contributed to the accident, according to county police.

Police declined to provide any further details.

Kyle's mother was transported via ambulance to UPMC Presbyterian in Pittsburgh, and another ambulance took the driver of the second vehicle to Allegheny Valley Hospital in Harrison, according to police.

Both were treated for minor injuries, according to police.

Riddle Run Road was closed until about 8 p.m. Police are expected to return to the scene on today for further investigation.
