A Missouri man was killed and a woman injured in a two-vehicle crash Friday morning along Interstate 79 in Cranberry.

Joseph W. South Jr., 42, from the community of Cuba, was driving a car that pulled from the berm into the northbound lanes at 10 a.m. and was hit by a pickup truck pulling a camper, state police said. South was killed when the front of the pickup truck crashed into the driver's door, troopers said.

A passenger in South's car, Mandy R. Garrison, 22, whose address was not released, was flown to a Pittsburgh hospital by medical helicopter with what troopers are calling “major” injuries.

The driver of the pickup truck, James L. Bushmire, 54, of Sturgeon in South Fayette, was not injured. He hit the brakes and served in an attempt to avoid a collision, troopers said.

Bushmire's passenger, James J. Eicher, 40, whose address is listed as Pittsburgh, also was uninjured, troopers said.
