One man was killed and another critically injured in separate crashes Tuesday afternoon in Pittsburgh.

An Ambridge man, 52, died of injuries sustained when his motorcycle crashed into a tree at 5:51 p.m. in the 100 block of Panther Hollow Road in Schenley Park, a spokesman for the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said. The motorcyclist, whose name was being withheld pending notification of relatives, was taken to UPMC Mercy, Uptown, where he died at 6:16 p.m.

The other crash occurred shortly before 4:30 p.m. when a car struck a utility pole at the intersection of Bedford and Crawford avenues in the Hill District, dispatchers said. The motorist was being treated at UPMC Mercy.
