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.
