Greenfield man killed in South Side crash
The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office identified the victim of a Thursday morning crash on the South Side as Greenfield resident Thomas Oshanick, 47.
Police aren't sure what caused the collision between Oshanick's car and a pickup truck in the 2900 block of East Carson Street shortly before 5 a.m. They did not believe alcohol or icy road conditions were factors.
Oshanick was transported to UPMC Presbyterian in Oakland, where he was declared dead about 45 minutes after the crash. His autopsy showed he died of blunt force trauma to the head and neck, and the Medical Examiner's office declared his death an accident.
East Carson Street was shut down while crews cleared the scene. The driver of the pickup truck suffered minor injuries.
