A New Kensington man died Friday afternoon when his vehicle slammed into a steel support post for a billboard along Route 366 in Upper Burrell.

State police identified the victim as Brian G. Rearic, 24, of Caldwell Avenue.

According to police at the scene, the accident occurred near Gregg Trucking shortly after 3 p.m. Rearic's eastbound car was traveling at a high rate of speed, police said, when for an unknown reason it crossed over into the westbound lane and off of the north berm. The car then struck a steel post supporting a billboard.

Rearic was trapped for a short time and died at the scene. The Westmoreland County Coroner's office was at the scene at 5 p.m.
