Man injured in Oakmont head-on dies
A Pittsburgh man died because of Tuesday morning's head-on crash in Oakmont.
A deputy Allegheny County medical examiner identified the man as Richard Scott, 60, of Beacon Street, Squirrel Hill. Scott died in UPMC Presbyterian, Pittsburgh.
Oakmont police said Scott was alone in a Subaru heading north toward downtown Oakmont on Hulton Road at 13th Street when the vehicle crossed the center line and collided with a van driven by Monica Sykes, 36, of Pennsylvania Avenue, Oakmont.
Witnesses told police Scott's Subaru had crossed the center line numerous times before hitting the van just after 11:30 a.m.
Sykes and two children in her vehicle, ages 3 and 6, were treated for injuries.
An autopsy determined Scott died from blunt- force trauma. His death was classified as an accident, according to a deputy medical examiner.
Police Chief David Di-Santi said officers are continuing an investigation and will obtain a search warrant to search Scott's car.
