2nd Sewickley woman identified in I-79 crash that killed 3 in Mercer County
State police Saturday identified a Sewickley woman as the third person killed in a two-vehicle crash Friday on I-79 in Mercer County.
State police said Mary G. Carmody, 44, of Sewickley, was a passenger in a vehicle driven by Susan L. Thomas, 54, also of Sewickley.
Police said both women were killed when their vehicle was struck head on by another driven by Robert J. Neubert II, 62, of Amherst, N.Y. Police said Neubert was driving south when he lost control of his vehicle and it crossed the median into the northbound lanes, colliding with Thomas' vehicle around 5:45 p.m.
Mercer County deputy coroner Robert Snyder pronounced both women dead at the scene. Neubert died at UPMC Horizon Greenville hospital.
Police said they are not sure why Neubert's vehicle crossed the highway.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
