Man killed in Indiana County crash

Monday, Dec. 2, 2013, 11:15 p.m.

An Indiana County man was killed late Monday in a one-vehicle accident.

Indiana County Chief Deputy Coroner Jerry L. Overman Jr. identified the victim as Peter Cindric Jr., 37, of Young Township.

Overman said in a news release that Cindric was driving a PT Cruiser on Park Drive in Young Township near the village of Clarksburg just before 11 p.m. when the car crossed into the opposite lane of travel. Cindric struck a utility pole and the car flipped on its roof, partially ejecting him through the sunroof.

Cindric was not wearing a seatbelt, Overman said. The cause of the accidental death is listed as blunt force trauma of the head and chest. Toxicology results are pending; an autopsy will not be performed.

Funeral arrangements are incomplete.
