A 22-year-old Ligonier Township man was killed in a one-vehicle accident in Unity early Sunday morning.

Zachary Z. Fazli was pronounced dead at 5 a.m., according to Westmoreland County Coroner Kenneth A. Bacha.

The crash happened around 2 a.m. on Route 30, about a mile east of the intersection with Route 217, according to state police.

Fazli was a passenger in the vehicle, which was eastbound. State police are not yet releasing the name of the driver, who was flown to a Pittsburgh hospital, according to Trooper Eric Zona.

There were no other vehicles involved in the accident. According to the coroner's office, the car hit the guide rail, continued down a steep embankment, struck trees and overturned multiple times.

Fazli , who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle. According to Bacha, he died of blunt-force trauma to the head.

State police said they are unsure of the reason for the crash and will continue their investigation.
