A Washington Township man has died of injuries he suffered Monday afternoon in a two-vehicle accident in Indiana County.

Another passenger in the Boyd vehicle, Zachary Bell, 21, is listed in fair condition in Allegheny General Hospital, where he was taken following the accident.

According to state police at the Indiana Barracks, a pickup truck driven by Mathew Henigin, 27, turned from Dean Street onto Route 119 southbound in Burrell Township, passing into the path of the car driven by Boyd. Boyd's car struck the side of the truck.

He was the son of Kimberly Burch Boyd of Belle Vernon and Kevin Boyd of Monongahela.
