Authorities said the death of a man found lying on a Carnegie street early Friday appears suspicious and hoped an autopsy would lend clues to the cause.

A passer-by found the man on North Bell Avenue about 12:25 a.m., the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said. Doctors at Allegheny General Hospital in the North Side pronounced him dead at 2:46 a.m.

Investigators did not release the man's name, pending notification of relatives.

The man, 53, had severe head and chest injuries, Carnegie police Sgt. Jeffrey Kennedy said.

“We're treating it as a suspicious death,” Kennedy said. “We don't know what caused his injuries.”

Police theorized he may have fallen down a nearby hillside or was struck by a hit-run motorist.

“It's a strange one,” Kennedy said. “We're hoping the autopsy will give us a better idea.”

The man lived at a nearby Extended Stay America hotel since November and before that lived in Scott, Kennedy said.
