A Salem man was killed Monday in a one-vehicle accident in Murrysville. The Westmoreland County Coroners office identified the victim as David J. Seigh, 50, of Forbes Trail Road. Coroner Kenneth Bacha said Seigh was traveling west on Manor Road just after 3 p.m. when the 2002 Ford Taurus he was driving failed to negotiate a curve, left the roadway and struck a tree. Deputy Coroner Tim O'Donnell pronounced Seigh dead at the scene. The cause of death was attributed to blunt-force trauma to the head, neck and chest. The victim was not wearing a seat belt, according to an incident report. According to investigators, witnesses' accounts indicated speed may have been a factor in the crash. Murrysville police are investigating. Funeral arrangements were incomplete late last night.
