A Carnegie man was killed Thursday when his truck overturned along Interstate 79 near the Canonsburg exit, Washington County Coroner S. Timothy Warco said.

Dakota Nairn Houy, 19, died in the crash that occurred at 6:05 p.m. in the northbound lanes of the interstate in North Strabane, Warco said.

He said the truck left the roadway and traveled along a hillside before striking an exit ramp sign pole and overturning onto its roof. Houy was pronounced dead at the scene.

A ruling on a cause and manner of death won't be made until state police complete their investigation and an autopsy is conducted, Warco said.
