Dunbar crash victim remains in critical condition
A man injured in a vehicle crash who was flown to a Pittsburgh hospital on Friday remains in critical condition, according to a UPMC spokesperson.
Terry Lee Stewart, 30, whose address was not available, was in “grave condition” after being ejected from his Chevrolet Avalanche on Bute Road, police said. He was traveling south about 2:55 p.m. when he sped up as a vehicle tried to pass him, police said.
The vehicles were side by side when Stewart lost control on a curve, police said.
Stewart's vehicle flipped, police said, and he was thrown from the vehicle. He was not wearing a seat belt.
Police said he was flown to UPMC Presbyterian.
Two unidentified juveniles, a boy and a girl, suffered minor injuries, police said. They were not wearing seat belts.

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.
