A man struck by a vehicle in McKeesport has died.

The cause and manner of death of Carvelle Crosby, 45, of McKeesport, has not yet been determined, an Allegheny County Medical Examiner' Office official said on Saturday evening.

McKeesport emergency responders found Crosby underneath a champagne-colored Chevy Malibu on Friday around 10:30 p.m. along the 3300 block of Stockholm Street.

He was pronounced dead later that evening at 11:08 at UPMC McKeesport.

McKeesport assistant police Chief Tom Greene called the incident suspicious because witnesses told officers they heard screeches and saw a black SUV fleeing the scene.

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

Anyone with information about the accident should contact McKeesport police at 412-675-5015.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

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.
