Victims identified in Somerset County crash
Two people were killed and two others injured in a two-vehicle crash at a Somerset County intersection on Saturday afternoon.
State police said a Subaru Outback being driven at noon by Amy Michelle Oblack, 25, on Cross Road drove onto Copper Kettle Highway and into the lane of travel of a GMC Sierra being driven by Roger Dale Hay, 61, of Middlecreek Township. The truck struck the passenger side of the Subaru, police said. A hometown for Oblack was not provided by police.
Hay and Oblack's 25-year-old passenger, Ryan Stallard of West Mifflin, were both pronounced dead at the scene, Somerset County Coroner Wally Miller said on Sunday. Autopsies were being conducted Sunday afternoon.
Oblack and Hay's passenger, Glennes Ann Miller, 61, of Somerset Township, suffered severe injuries, according to police, who did not say whether the victims were being treated at a hospital. Police are investigating the crash.

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.
