A man was critically injured when police say he was struck by a vehicle in McKeesport on Friday night.

McKeesport police Assistant Chief Tom Greene said the incident that occurred about 10:30 along the 3300 block of Stockholm Street was suspicious.

The man, who was not identified, was transported by McKeesport Ambulance Rescue Service to UPMC McKeesport.

Greene said witnesses reported hearing screeches and saw a black SUV fleeing the scene.

When emergency responders arrived, they found a man trapped underneath a champagne-colored Chevy Malibu.

Greene said Allegheny County police were called to reconstruct the accident scene, and county homicide was notified of the incident.

Police did not release any other information at presstime. The intersections at Stockholm Street and Grandview Avenue, and Stockholm and Gray streets, were blocked.

Eric Jeffcoat, who lives along the 3300 block of Stockholm, said he was returning home when he saw the emergency vehicles headed down his street.

He said this is not the first accident that has taken place by his house, noting it's on a very steep hill.

Jeffcoat said there should be some type of sign near the intersection of Stockholm and Gray streets warning drivers because “they can't see until they get down the hill.”

Anyone with information regarding the incident should contact McKeesport police at 412-675-5015.
